Paul Allen Sues 11 Internet & Retail Giants ‘Google, Apple, eBay’ and Others Over Patents Infringment

A tech licensing company controlled by Paul Allen is suing eleven Internet and retail giants including: AOL, Apple, eBay, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Office Depot, OfficeMax, Staples, Yahoo, and YouTube — alleging that they’re violating patents on “fundamental web technologies” developed by Interval Research, the now-defunct Silicon Valley lab that Allen created with Xerox PARC veteran David Liddle in the 1990s.

The patents cited in the suit include one for a “Browser for use in navigating a body of information, with particular app to browsing information represented by audiovisual data” (6,263,507); two patents for an “Attention manager for occupying the peripheral attention of a person in vicinity of a display device” (6,034,652 and 6,788,314) and one for “Alerting users to items of current interest.”(6,757,682).
