Facebook has filed a federal lawsuit against Phoenix Media/Communications, owner of The Boston Phoenix and WFNX-FM, alleging the company's band and restaurant guides and a Web-based music player are infringing on two of the social network's patents. The Facebook filing follows a similar complaint lodged a year ago by Phoenix Media alleging Facebook infringed on its patent related to its online personals profiles. Neither Phoenix Media/Communications nor Facebook commented for this article.
