Mozilla vs Yahoo
Mozilla and Yahoo have filed complaints against each other regarding the use of Yahoo as Firefox’s default search engine. The legal battle started after Mozilla replaced Yahoo with Google. On 1 December, Yahoo Holdings and Oath filed a complaint against Mozilla – claiming it improperly terminated its agreement with Yahoo.
Mozilla then filed a cross-complaint for breach of contract.
Mozilla said it exercised its contractual right to terminate its agreement with Yahoo, based on a number of factors.
These factors include “doing what’s best for our brand, our effort to provide quality web search, and the broader content experience for our users”.
