Current status: case rejected by judge on 11 Dec 2010, appeal possible until 28 Dec 2010.[1]

In August 2010, Interval Licensing (previously Interval Research) filed a patent suit against AOL, Apple, eBay, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Office Depot, OfficeMax, Staples, Yahoo, and YouTube.

Interval Licensing is run by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. It began life as Interval Research, which failed and transfered its patents to Vulcan Patents LLC, which in turn passed the patents to Interval Licensing LLC.
