Yahoo! suing Facebook is interesting. At first glance I would think “patent troll” again. However if you stop and think about it, much of what Facebook prior to 2007/2008 is exactly what Yahoo! was .. on steroids.
I really hope Yahoo! can blow Facebook out of the water — getting a huge judgement — and a stiff future royalty payment. That is in the courtroom. Once wonders however, if Facebook users would “politically kill” Yahoo! for winning. It would, in the long run, affect what Facebook is — and could become, probably for the worse. Would Facebook users put up with that? Or — like they did with the death of MySpace — would they just move on to the next social network?
