Facebook sues Phoenix Media over patent rights - The Boston Globe

Interesting IP protection times for Facebook

In a complaint filed yesterday in US District Court in Boston, Facebook alleged that the Boston media company, its Tele-Publishing Inc./People2People Group, and WFNX are using features such as guides for bands and eateries on the newspaper’s website and an online music player at the radio station that infringe on patents.

The complaint comes a year after Phoenix Media filed a suit against the California-based social networking company and complained that Facebook violated a patent related to setting up online personal profile pages.
