And to think we thought Myspace and Shoutitout were friends.
A few days ago we said that we thought Myspace Shoutitout sync was right around the corner. We were very, very, very wrong. Shoutitout just public announced it is suing Myspace over patent infringement and expects nothing less than damages and removing the infringe material. Which brings us to what it is. The status update box. A month or so ago Shoutitout got a patent on there status update box which is extremely similar to Myspaces (also Facebooks). Myspaces is almost exactly the same the icons and size are different but everything is in the same place. Myspace has stated they have no intention of giving up there status update feature so we aren’t sure how this one will turn out. Myspace will probably fight this, at lest for a while. Shoutitout seems to think Myspace doesn’t stand a chance so might keep going for a while. We will see!
