maxfresh (1435479) writes "Kazaa founder Kevin Bermeister and Streamcast founder Michael Weiss have formed a company called Personal Web which is pursuing patent infringement lawsuits against some of the biggest names in the cloud computing industry including Google, YouTube, Amazon, EMC, VMWare, Dropbox, NetApps, NEC and Caringo.
