+ Northeastern sues Google over search patent (via Reuters)

The complaint was filed on November 6 in Marshall, in the Eastern District of Texas--the U.S. court with a history of decisions that are highly favorable to plaintiffs in patent cases--but the case only came to light over the weekend. The plaintiffs are Boston-based Northeastern University and Jarg, a start-up founded by a Northeastern University professor that is the exclusive licensee of search technology patented in 1997, a year before Google was incorporated....he plaintiffs are looking to be paid for their intellectual property, not put Google out of business. "We are just interested in a normal royalty if the case determines that...Google is using the technology we developed," [Michael], Belanger president and co-founder of Jarg said.
