Skyhook Wireless Sues Google

Two days ago, Skyhook Wireless issued a press release titled "Skyhook Adds Location Engine to Layar App for Android."  Now, however, things aren’t so cozy between Skyhook and Google, as the former company’s sued the latter for business interference and patent infringement.

Skyhook is kind of a big deal in the location-based app space.  It used to be partners with Apple, and has also sealed deals with AOL, Navteq, and Samsung (among other organizations) since it was founded in 2003.
