Google Offers, which began taking sign-ups since yesterday only in three U.S. locales has now been sued. The Walker Digital, a private R&D lab that created and launched Priceline.com in the late 1990s, has filed a lawsuit in a US District Court, suing Google for allegedly violating four of the company's patents. The lawsuit, which asks the court for a jury trial, seeks unspecified damages and a permanent injunction.

Also, earlier this month, the company filed 15 similar suits against more than 100 defendants including Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, eBay and Apple. Walker Digital also sued Facebook last year over its "friending" technology, according to paidContent.
