Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

IBM sues Zillow

IBM sues Zillow over multiple charges of patent infringement

“Rather than build their business on their own technologies, Zillow has appropriated the inventions of the [patents named in the lawsuit],” the complaint reads. “The website, www.zillow.com, and the associated mobile applications under Zillow’s control use the technology claimed by the [patents named in the lawsuit], to provide customers access to real estate listings and provide advertisements and other services for real estate agents.”

Feels a little different than the normal “patent troll” shake down. Lawsuits are always part of the game but Zillow has enough to deal with right now.
