IBM sues Priceline over patents, because Prodigy was cool

16 06 2015

IBM has a long history of getting paid for its patents. When its $1 billion licensing juggernaut hits the occasional bump in the road, it often results in a high-profile lawsuit.

That happened this week, when IBM filed a patent suit (PDF) against Priceline, as well as Kayak and OpenTable, two companies Priceline purchased in recent years. The complaint says that despite IBM’s “repeated demands,” Priceline refused to buy a patent license.

“Priceline has built its business model on the use of IBM’s patents,” write IBM lawyers.
