Datner v. Yahoo
About mid 2005 Avi Datner
learned that Yahoo's search results did not include his website partypop.com. In
November, he contacted Yahoo and told them that as the result of Yahoo's
excluding of partypop.com from its search results, he was loosing advertising
revenue. At about that time Yahoo confirmed that its search results were not
including partypop.com because someone at Yahoo had placed the website on a list
of web sites which were excluded from the search results. Yahoo did not explain
why the website was excluded.
In July Datner sued Yahoo,
claiming that Yahoo unfairly and illegally directs business away from him to his
