New York based "Rates Technology" (RTI) claims that Google Talk violates two of their patents (5,425,085 and 5,519,769). They tried to settle the dispute with Google directly, but G didn't seemed to be interested. Now litigation has started. The New York Post reported a settlement of 5 Billion US$.
