Yahoo and Facebook end their patent dispute

Looks like Yahoo got what they were looking for when they sued Facebook for patent infringement.

The two companies have ended their legal disputes and announced a strategic partnership.

Yahoo and Facebook have also signed a patent deal to prevent any related dispute in the future.

The companies said that they are going to work together to “bring consumers and advertisers premium media experiences promoted and distributed across both Yahoo! and Facebook”.

It remains to be seen what kind of products and services are launched as part of this collaboration. Facebook already has broad collaboration with Microsoft.
