Yahoo and Mozilla in the court

07 December, 2017, 16:13 | Author: Sammy Rose

The search company further claims that Mozilla's actions significantly damaged its reputation and business. The lawsuit focuses on Yahoo Holding and Oath which was based on Mozilla's agreement with the search engine for putting the default search browser in their web browsers. Mozilla determined in January 2015 that the user experience Yahoo Search provided was sub-par [and] identified "five areas I'd like to push Yahoo! on of the next few weeks".

When Mozilla launched Firefox Quantum, it also announced that the default search engine in the United States, Canada, Hong Kong and Taiwan would be Google. The case was filed by Verizon in the Court of California on 1st of December. Last month, it launched the Firefox Quantum browser, and it comes with Google running out of the box. And Google became pretty desperate to get people to switch their default search engine back by placing messages at the top of search results. On December 5, Mozilla filed a cross-complaint seeking to ensure that our rights under our contract with Yahoo are enforced.

Mozilla stated that it studied how Yahoo might affect Firefox's web search and the user experience. Mayer allowed the inclusion of a clause that will allow Mozilla to continue receiving annual payments of $375 million from Yahoo until 2019 if Yahoo was bought by a company that Mozilla does not want to work with.

While Mozilla emphasizes that the decision to replace Yahoo with Google was exclusively taken to improve the customer experience with the new version of the web browser, Yahoo has knocked the court's door with the hope of saving its limited customer base through the web browser. "The terms of our contract are clear and our post-termination rights under our contract with Yahoo should continue to be enforced", Mozilla legal head Denelle Dixon said in a statement. That is, the browser would use Yahoo as its default search engine. Verizon isn't renowned for its commitment to search, and it doesn't seem like the most natural of bed partners for Firefox, so it seems as though this was the reason why Mozilla pulled the plug on its Yahoo search deal. It has also said that it had to take the decision to remove Yahoo as the default browser because continuing to use Yahoo as the default browser would have had a negative impact.

Yahoo Acquirer's response to Mozilla's concerns was in stark contrast to Yahoo's assurances from CEO Mayer at the time the Strategic Agreement was entered into. We enter into all of our relationships with a shared goal to deliver a great user experience and further the web as an open platform. In the midst of the negotiations, some fine print in the Mozilla / Yahoo contract surfaced.

"Yahoo Search consistently failed to retain users and search volume over time, reducing the potential revenue [for Mozilla] under the Strategic Agreement", added Mozilla. The firm says it used its right to bring the relationship to an end. Still, we are proud of how we conducted our business and product work throughout the relationship, how we handled the termination of the agreement, and we are confident in our legal positions.
