Google v. SearchKing

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on January 13, 2003

The legal rangling between search engine giant Google and a search engine portal aggregator called SearchKing is playing out in the U.S. Western District Court of Oklahoma. The lawsuit by SearchKing revolves around the use of Googles’ Page Rank Algorithm, a system by which websites are displayed in response to Google queries based on popularity ratings.
A document library associated with the lawsuit is available via SearchKing’ site here. In addition, LawMeme has an extensive and well documented presentation of the facts involved in this dispute here.
