Search Company Buys Into Waste-Management Business

I was reminded of the bizarre tale of Liberate Technologies today when I read that Copernic, operator of the Mamma.com search engine, will pay approximately C$3.5-million dollars in cash and stock to get into the waste management equipment business.

Really, you couldn’t make up this stuff.

Apparently Copernic has signed a letter of intent with Fanotech Manufacturing Group to buy three of its subsidiaries: Fanotech Enviro Inc., Fanotech Waste Equipment Inc, and FanoCore. The companies supply garbage trucks and trash bins, among other refuse-related products.

I wonder whether Mark Cuban approves.
