Datner v. Yahoo

About mid 2005 Avi Datner learned that Yahoo's search results did not include his website In November, he contacted Yahoo and told them that as the result of Yahoo's excluding of from its search results, he was loosing advertising revenue. At about that time Yahoo confirmed that its search results were not including 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 competitors.
