Google Inc., owner of the most-used Internet search engine, must face a Wisconsin company's lawsuit over a toolbar feature that generates Web links from computer-search data, a federal appeals court decided.

The US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington yesterday revived part of HyperPhrase Technologies LLC's lawsuit, throwing out a lower court ruling that Google's AutoLink feature didn't infringe its patents.

As part of Google's Web browser toolbar, AutoLink gives users more information than standard Web links. It recognizes data such as addresses and book numbers, then provides links to online maps or books on Amazon.com.
