Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer speaks at Tech Crunch Disrupt NY 2014- Day 3
08 December, 2017, 01:11
Now, Yahoo and Mozilla have each filed complaints alleging that the other company violated the 2014 contract. And there is legal backing to it as well given that Yahoo did give Mozilla the leeway to change the search engine anytime it wanted while still being liable to the payment.
In response to the lawsuit by Oath, Mozilla stated: "We recently exercised our contractual right to terminate our agreement with Yahoo based on a number of factors including doing what'd best for our brand, our effort to provide quality web search, and the broader content experience for our users".
Mozilla legal head Denelle Dixon continued, "Immediately following Yahoo's acquisition, we undertook a lengthy, multi-month process to seek assurances from Yahoo and its acquirers with respect to those factors". But according to a Mozilla statement on Tuesday , the company reviewed the deal following Yahoo's acquisition and chose to exercise its "contractual right" to terminate its agreement with Yahoo.
Before taking to court, Oath explains that it tried to make amends with Mozilla by asking it to "take immediate steps to cure its breaches and rescind its termination notice".
Nearly exactly three years later, when Firefox Quantum was released, on November 14 2017, Mozilla reverted to making Google the default search engine in the United States, Canada, Hong Kong and Taiwan, while retaining Yandex In Russia, Turkey, Belarus and Kazakhstan and Baidu in China. This led Yahoo's parent company, Oath to file a complaint in which it alleged that the software company had hurt the search engine's business by terminating the agreement early.
Mayer did not think that such a thing would happen, but Yahoo's purchase by Verizon triggered the stipulation. The price tag was reduced by $350 million following an admission to a pair of hacks that exposed over 1 billion accounts.
Actually, Yahoo will continue to suffer because it's a rubbish search engine, but anyway...

Mozilla said of the change, "This is part of our ongoing search strategy, announced in 2014 to evaluate and select the best search experience in each region as opposed to having a single global default". We measure our success not only by the adoption of our products, but also by our ability to increase the control people have in their online lives, our impact on the health of the internet, our contribution to standards, and how we work to protect and build the web that users need and want.
