ACS: we own the right to auto-complete search queries

From Inside Counsel: “Auto Completion Solutions (ACS), based in Frisco, Texas, has filed suit against some major technology companies. In its suit, ACS claims that Google, Facebook, Yahoo! and LinkedIn violated the patent it holds on auto-completion for Internet searches.”

Apparently, ACS bought these patent rights for the purpose of collecting licensing fees (i.e., it’s a “patent troll”).
