    Yahoo suing for patent infringements, talk about a dark hall looking to be in the Spotlight once more.

    Yahoo, do a little in-house cleanup and be worthy of the Spotlight once more. The majority of users do not care about the smut you allow in your chat rooms.

    Are you really complaining about Yahoo because of people in their chatrooms?

    This seems like such an insignificant factor to base your statements on, or I could be misinterpreting what you wrote here...

    Meaning Yahoo needs to work on in-house rather than point a finger at someone else for their short comings. That was only one example of which I am personally disgusted with. It's not real people I'm complaining about.

    Yet more corporate lawfare in place of innovation. Corporate lawyers must rejoice at how their owned politicians have "fixed" the patent system. It's as big a mess as the entertainment industry's bought-and-paid-for copyright system. Lawfare - the legal specialty of the future. In the U.S., let's all thank the ex-prosecutors and future lobbyists who run Congress.

    For Yahoo, this may be perhaps the only thing keeping their heads above water as far as business goes.
