Lycos, the faded Internet star, takes another shot at stardom
- Aug 11, 2015
"Lycos claims its technologies are used in online advertising, ad keywords, search engine optimization, databases, and even IoT and online multi-player gaming.
“Some of these patents could certainly be relevant to IoT, if they have a broad enough claim language that would cover some of the basic protocols that the IoT ecosystem implements,” said Efrat Kasznik, president of Foresight Valuation Group LLC, a Silicon Valley-based intellectual property consulting firm.
Because IoT is fundamentally a layer of sensors collecting data and transmitting it over communication networks for analysis, some IoT technologies could be breaching Lycos patents, Kasznik said."
