Author: JT Smith
And now, a few words from an Internet World interview with CMGI president David Wetherell: "Wetherell: ..we believe that virtually everyone out there who indexes the Web is in violation of at least several of those key patents (owned by subsidiary AltaVista). Internet World: Does that mean you'll pursue that? Wetherell: Yes, we will. Coming up in the first quarter of 2001."
