Google Sued for $5B Rates Technology, a little-known patent-holding company with a history of filing suits against large technology companies, said it will seek $5 billion in damages from Google based on unpaid royalties from a patent infringement lawsuit RTI filed against Google in New York.

For the humor-impaired - 1) note the category, 2) get a clue.
