LAW STREET MEDIA - Meta told a Brooklyn, New York judge to reject PHHHOTO Inc.'s monopolization and unfair business practice case. Meta's reply brief doubled down on arguments that the would-be rival's claims are both untimely and fail to satisfy the federal pleading standard. Phhhoto sued Meta arguing that it liked Phhhoto's idea so much, it decided to disenfranchise the young company and eventually launch an identical feature which Meta called "Boomerang" and integrated into its Instagram app. The social media platform operator contends that Phhhoto's antitrust claim is time-barred because all of the challenged conduct occurred more than 4 years before Phhhoto sued.
