Polaris IP, suing Google, argues for wide-ranging discovery

9 12 2008

On Friday, I wrote about how lawyers working for Polaris IP (Erich Spangenberg) want to use the discovery process in Polaris IP v. Google to learn more about Google’s patent reform efforts. Google asked for a protective order; now Spangenberg’s response is available. [PDF via Justia]

What’s the relevance? Polaris lawyers want to know “Google’s views and efforts relative to the Accused Instrumentalities being able to use the patented technology of others without providing damages adequate to compensate for the infringement.” The “Accused Instrumentalities” are the Google products Spangenberg believes he should be paid a royalty on: Google Search, AdWords, and AdSense.
