Google Sued Over What It Does Best

Google has been sued in patent over its basic search functionality.  Northeastern University patented the process for search through a distributed computer database in 1994.  Google is not sweating it according to statements from the company.  The landscape changed last year when the Supreme Court said that traditional tests for injunctions apply, even in patent cases.  Google may have to shell out some money if the patent holds up, but it's not going to go out of business.  I wonder if Microsoft, Yahoo, and the rest have anything to say about this?
