ITEM 3.    Legal Proceedings 
  
From time to time we have been, and expect to continue to be, subject to legal proceedings and claims in the ordinary course of our 
business, including claims of alleged infringement of third party trademarks and other intellectual property rights by us. These claims, even if 
not meritorious, could require the expenditure of significant financial and managerial resources.  
  
On June 19, 2001, a putative securities class action complaint entitled Horton v. InfoSpace, Inc., et al. was filed in the United States 
District Court for the Western District of Washington. The complaint alleges that InfoSpace and its chief executive officer made false and 
misleading statements about InfoSpace's business and prospects during the period between January 26, 2000 and January 30, 2001. The 
complaint alleges violations of the federal securities laws and does not specify the amount of damages sought. Subsequently, other similar 
complaints were filed. The Horton matter and the subsequent complaints have been consolidated into one matter, captioned In re InfoSpace, 
Inc. Securities Litigation. The Court has appointed lead plaintiffs and counsel, and a consolidated complaint was filed on January 22, 2002, 
which, among other things, added our chief financial officer as a defendant. We believe we have meritorious defenses to these claims but 
litigation is inherently uncertain and we may not prevail in this matter.  
  
On March 19, 2001, a purported shareholder derivative complaint entitled Youtz v. Jain, et al. was filed in the Superior Court of 
Washington for King County. The complaint has been amended twice thus far and has been renamed Dreiling v. Jain, et al. The complaint 
names as defendants current and former officers and directors of ours and entities related to a few of the individual defendants; InfoSpace is 
named as a  nominal defendant.  The complaint alleges that certain defendants breached their fiduciary duties to us and were unjustly enriched 
by engaging in insider trading, and also alleges that certain defendants breached their fiduciary duties in connection with the Go2Net and Prio 
mergers and that one defendant converted our assets to his personal use. Various equitable remedies are requested in the complaint, including 
disgorgement, restitution, accounting and imposition of a constructive trust, and the complaint also seeks monetary damages. As stated, the 
complaint is derivative in nature and does not seek monetary damages from, or the imposition of equitable remedies on, InfoSpace. We have 
entered into indemnification agreements in the ordinary course of business with officers and directors and may be obligated throughout the 
pendency of this action to advance payment of legal fees and costs incurred by the defendant officers and directors pursuant to our obligations 
under the indemnification agreements and applicable Delaware law. The special litigation committee of our Board of Directors, with the 
assistance of independent legal counsel, has investigated the complaint, and filed on March 22, 2002 a motion to terminate this derivative 
action.  
  
On December 18, 2000, an employee filed a complaint against us in the United States District Court for the Western District of 
Washington alleging claims for breach of contract, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and fraudulent and negligent 
misrepresentation. The suit also included a claim against Naveen Jain, our Chief Executive Officer, for violations of the Racketeer Influenced 
Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. The employee contends that he agreed to work for us on the basis of an oral representation that he would be 
granted more stock options than any other employee and that he would always have more stock options than any other
