Google has acquired the remaining pending patent applications for Cuil, a defunct search engine once touted as a Google challenger.

Cuil's last seven pending patents were acquired by Google with an execution date of February 4, 2011, according to a blog post at SEO By The Sea, but weren't recorded at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office until last week. The record reportedly does not reveal the financial terms of the transfer, but SEO By The Sea notes that Cuil co-founder Anna Patterson returned to Google in 2010.

If Ms. Patterson returned to the company, to what extent did she bring Panda w/ her?
