Koreans accuse Google of patent infringement

    Park & ​​OPC, a Korean Internet service provider, claims that it was he who invented the technology for maintaining the history of search queries and personalized search based on it. The Google search engine allegedly uses this technology without permission and violates a patent obtained by the Koreans back in 2003. In this regard, Park & ​​OPC lawyers sued Google.

    The case will be tried in a court in Seoul, the Korea Times reports citing Yonhap News.
