This article is a bit old, but didn't find anything more recent from a quick search (if anyone finds more recent info, pleae post)- Location-Based Search? Patented! Owner Plans To Sue Everyone [techdirt.com]

I have a source that says the suit is going to be expanded to more than a dozen of the largest IYPs.

Scary stuff for the Local industry if it doesn't get tossed out.

Well, at least a judge ruled on the definitions [docfiles.justia.com] to use in the case.
