Power.com amends claims in Facebook case

In a case where originally Facebook sued Power.com for copyright infringement, now Power.com is grabbing the headlines in counterclaims.  However, that maybe all that Power.com gets as its original counterclaims that Facebook had engaged in unfair competition violated antitrust laws were dismissed by Judge Jeremy Fogel the federal judge in San Jose California. 

Power.com has now amended its counterclaims and is saying that Facebook’s obvious success in gaining market share and the fact that new competitors haven’t been able to make significant in roads,  shows that the company has engaged in “anti-scrapping tactics” with its competitors.  Some antitrust legal experts are dubious about the merits of these claims (see article linked above).
