Submission + - File sharing entrepenuers sue cloud providers for (smh.com.au)

maxfresh 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.

The lawsuits allege infringement of patents that they claim cover key elements of cloud computing, "including content addressable storage and/or distributed search engine technologies", and were filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern district of Texas, which has the infamous reputation of being the preferred venue for U.S. based patent trolls.
