Don’t look now, but it’s another round of patent infringement lawsuits. This time, Google and Microsoft are being sued by a company based in Lake Charles, Louisiana, that claims to own a patent that allows online users to navigate maps of towns and cities at a street-level view.

Transcenic Inc. has asked a Delaware District court to stop Google and Microsoft from “continuing to infringe its patent,” even demanding the court to award damages to the complainant. The company has stated in court documents that Google’s Streetview, Google Earth, and Microsoft’s Streetside are infringing Transcenic’s technology, which covers systems that capture and navigating within panoramic images. Even AOL and its MapQuest were also named as defendants because of MapQuest’s 360 View, which also allows users to navigate through street-level images.

All defendants have yet to publish their comments in this issue.
