Writing yesterday on the Mozilla blog, chief business and legal officer Denelle Dixon said her organization made a decision to terminate its agreement with Yahoo/Oath based on a number of factors, including doing what's best for the brand, its effort to provide quality Web search, and the broader content experience for its users.
"Yahoo has suffered and will continue to suffer competitive injury to its business and reputation, among other harm", the complaint says. Mozilla hit back on December 5 with a cross-complaint arguing that it was protecting its rights to enforce the contract. Among others, Mozilla contends that Yahoo violated its contract by failing to improve its search engine.
"As a result, it was one of the significant factors that contributed to the decline in Firefox usage". Furthermore, The foundation mentioned that its revenue from Yahoo did not meet expectations although payments continued until October 31, 2017.
Yahoo has now sued Mozilla for breach of contract, though, Yahoo has said that it had brought the change to the notice of Mozilla befit exiling the suit. Mozilla was even allowed to walk away from the contract if it wanted to. And Oath is accusing Mozilla of violating terms of the agreement, which forms the basis of its legal complaint against the browser.
The contract, however, was very much skewed in Mozilla's favor.
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".
"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", Dixon said. "Indeed, the parties anticipated that key elements of the negotiated deal to provide stability to Mozilla and to offset the high risk that Mozilla was taking by choosing Yahoo Search as the default search provider". We enter into all of our relationships with a shared goal to deliver a great user experience and further the web as an open platform.
