99% of Google's Advertising comes from...

Remember the bad Spock from the parallel universe? The Vulcan who wore a menacing goatee? Well, it seems that Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) has its own bearded evil twin, and he's ready to make another cameo.

Google's original courtroom victory in a patent-infringement suit has been dealt a blow, now that an appeals court will let part of Google's successful defense be contested.

Initially bringing the lawsuit was HyperPhrase, which charged that Big G's AdSense product and AutoLink toolbar feature trampled on its intellectual property.

Thankfully for Google, only the AutoLink feature will get a second run through the court system. Since Google relies on online advertising for 99% of its revenue, any setbacks to its AdSense cash cow would have sent chills down shareholders' spines.

>>>Gimme More!
