Google Street View patent case hits the Federal Circuit

Patent infringement case moves up to the Federal Circuit, facing a controversial ruling

Whether facing class action lawsuits for failing to prevent in-app purchases or facing dozens of patent trolls, the tech giant has seen its fair share of courtroom action in recent years. Now, one case that has been dragging through the courts since 2010 has taken a decidedly anti-Google turn.

Back in 2010, Vederi, LLC filed a suit against Google, alleging that the tech giant had infringed on four of Vederi’s patents related to “methods for creating images of a geographic area that a user may then navigate via a computer.” These patents, the Pasadena, Calif.-based company claimed, were infringed upon by Google’s Street View technology.
