Skyline Lawsuit seeks shutdown of Google Earth

From AZcentral the story reads... Google Earth, should be shut down until a lawsuit over its underlying technology is resolved, Skyline Software Systems Inc., owner of the patent at issue in the case, said in court papers... In court papers filed Jan. 4 in Boston, Skyline said user access to Google Earth should be suspended while the suit is pending. Google slashed the price of Keyhole's services, added a free version and as a result "has eclipsed its competitors in this market," Skyline said. Skyline's products include Terra Gate, Terra Builder and Terra Explorer Pro. For more details see Skyline Software Systems Inc. v. Keyhole Corp., 04cv11129, U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts or AZcentral article at http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/0106google-earth06-ON.html
