Web.com Sues GoDaddy for Patent Infringement

Domain name registrar Web.com filed a patent infringement lawsuit on Monday against rival GoDaddy.com. The lawsuit alleges that GoDaddy's Deluxe Hosting Plan infringes on Web.com's patent called "Synchronized Server Parameter Database," which allows customers to have remote access to a control panel that is part of the Web hosting service.

Atlanta, Georgia-based Web.com filed the lawsuit against Scottsdale, Ariz.-based GoDaddy.com in the U.S. District Court in Atlanta. A GoDaddy representative said company representatives had not been served with the complaint and therefore could not comment.

Access to a control panel? Patent? The patent office must be full of imbeciles. How can you get a patent on allowing customers to access their sever from a control panel. Rediculous and frivolous.

I'm a customer of both and I hope GoDaddy kicks their butt on this one.

Sounds like an affiliation not necessarily a partnership.

Sounds like a good way to drum up publicity.
