Groupon Sues 'Once-Great' IBM Over Patent

The lawsuits between IBM and Groupon are starting to get a little nasty. If you thought the "once-great" comment was bad, wait until you get to the part where Groupon calls IBM a "dial-up-era dinosaur."

The online marketplace Groupon Inc has sued IBM Corp, accusing it of infringing a patent related to technology that helps businesses solicit customers based on the customers' locations at a given moment. Groupon filed its lawsuit on Monday with the federal court in its hometown of Chicago, two months after IBM accused Groupon of patent infringement in a separate lawsuit.
