Pilgrim’s Picks for November 7

Woohoo it’s Friday?

Let’s celebrate with today’s Picks:

  • A Russian company is suing Google for $3 billion, claiming AdSense infringes on its patent. Whatever.
  • The recession is going to reduce the growth rate of local online advertising from 47% growth this year to just 8% next year. Ouch!
  • E-consultancy has advice for publishers looking to improve their site search. Noted.
  • Live Search Maps has added Photosynth images.
  • How cool is the new "Reactions" feature, just added to Blogger?

    Sueing Google could be quite profitable if you have a watertight case….otherwise it will be like sueing any multinational company…they’ll keep you at arms lenght until you run out of cash….ouch!

    That is really interesting about the adsense. That would be interesting if they actually won the case against google.

    Thanks for the picks, but will suing such a highly reputable company like Google sovle the problem?

    I can only hope your advertising growth rate is wrong, but I fear that it will be close.

    If Google doesn’t win the case, then they’re in for ruin, you know $3 Bln is a lot of hard cash even for an industry giant like google!

    Ouch indeed, online advertising growth from 47 to 8%? not cool…
    As for suing Google.. I can’t say that’s a particulary good idea… It’ll end up turning, simply, into a war of attrition.. and that’s a mighty deep hole to be throwing your money into

    The Russians will never win this case. This is absurd. They will however gain some good PR.

    I suppose we should consider ourselves lucky that we work in an industry that is still growing unlike so many others where growth looks an increasingly remote possibility.
