Just as the industry experts predicted, Facebook didn’t left Yahoo’s patent claim unnoticed and replied with a counterclaim of its own.

Media reports confirm that in order to fight the claim, the largest social networking site in the world had to rush out to the shops and buy a few patents of its own. A number of the patents asserted today were indeed acquired after Yahoo provoked the company. Worse still, social network is also insisting that it has “implied” licenses to those very patents which Yahoo is using to sue.

Yahoo has launched a lawsuit a month ago, claiming that the entire social network model of Facebook was based on their social networking technology. Online giant benefited from one of the Facebook weaknesses: a shortage of patents. However, the networking company apparently rushed out and got a few. Some of them were filing for new patents, while others were just bought by Facebook from 3rd parties.

Only 20% of the patents asserted by Facebook originated from within the company. Among them there was a patent obtained by Mark Zuckerberg himself. Actually, there were only 10 patents in the center of the discussion, and only two of them were initially from Facebook, while 8 others seem to be acquired recently. One of them was purchased in the end of March, a couple of others were bought in February, and two Facebook got in last December. Another three patents asserted by the largest social network worldwide are still recorded by the Patent and Trademark Office of the United States as being owned by New York University. It means that these patents must have been acquired so recently that the transfer hasn’t been registered with the patent office yet.

kingtiger01 avatarFacebook... Laughing stock of them all... Supports every form of Bigotry there is and makes billions from selling youre private information.

Claims to own everything(sounds like apple doesnt it!) and infact is just riding on the Skirt-tails of earlier technology...

Social-Sites have existed since long before the (.com) Boom... Does anyone remember Message boards, Forums, image boards. Social-Media sites are just a combination of these services. But set up in a way that it makes it appear to a novice as "a New technology"..

Online Dating services have been using the majority of services they offer for years...

Heck 70% of Facebooks infrastructure is IDENTICAL to Myspace... There messaging service is a FORK of Jabber!!!!

They can have all the patents they want, because when it boils down to it... They all stole it from some where else. Play nice or Close up shop boys!

No avatarIf you are dumb enough to use Facebook to communicate with your friends, well.. you deserve what's coming to you. Facebook is run by the CIA. Mark Zuckerberg is just a puppet. Facebook is so obviously a spy machine for the government I just can't understand why so many people use it. I mean are you really that dumb? Law enforcement agencies have openly admitted they use facebook to manage multiple fake accounts that post pro government propaganda and other government crap like that. Facebook = Spyware.
