Facebook Infringes My Patents Too, Says CEO Who Just Sued Google

Not surprisingly, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which has long fought against such patent suits, sees things differently. “The marketplace is where this entire fight should be taking place,” says Julie Samuels, senior staff attorney with the EFF. “Nortel made its money off its products.
