INTERNET pioneer Yahoo! is reportedly seething over its allocation of just 5.5m shares in the upcoming Google float as controversy over the sky-high price of shares announced on Monday rolls on.

Yahoo!, headed by chairman and chief executive Terry Semel, is demanding more shares from upstart Google in a contract dispute stemming from the partnership that the two companies formed in 2000.

5.5 Million shares at an opening price of $180 means just under $1 billion (Who argues over $10 mil at that price point)?.

Worth a court case of 2 to fight for some more!
