It’s the clash of the titans. In a lawsuit filed late last week, Xerox Corp. is accusing Google (News - Alert) and Yahoo of infringing on its Internet search-related patents.
According to Xerox, Google’s AdSense, maps and YouTube (News - Alert) businesses, as well as Yahoo Shopping, infringe on its patents. As a result, Xerox is asking for compensation and requesting that the search giants cease use of the technology at issue.
Both of the search giants expect to fight the allegations.
