Apparently, back on 25 June the High Court granted Google special leave to appeal from the Full Federal Court’s ruling that Google is liable for the misleading ads placed by advertisers.

Changes were made in the copyright laws of the United States in order to ensure that what David LaMacchia did would be criminal in the future. Nevertheless, those changes to the copyright laws did not put an end to piracy on the Internet, nor could they have been realistically expected to do so. Corporations, entrepreneurs, artists and creators have lobbied the United States Congress for changes in the law to help them protect their copyrighted works, but they have also increasingly relied upon… [read post]

Google Adsense Carpet Bombers are those individuals or entities that create web sites with a small amount of text that  is dominated by the Google Adsense ads appearing on the page.  The Bulgarian website cited in the previous article had 14 Google Adsense ads surrounding the text. Some of these carpet bombers fall into the splog (spam weblog) category. But the most recent incarnations are web sites that scrape small amounts of text about structured settlements from other web… [read post]

French search company 1PlusV has added to the European dogpile on Google, accusing the search giant of keeping the little guys down when it comes to advertising on AdSense. 1PlusV says it has filed a new complaint with the European Commission to supplement an earlier complaint against Google. The Commission says it plans to give Google a chance to respond before moving forward. 1PlusV is behind the legal search engine, and says that Google won't allow the site to… [read post]

Microsoft has recently tested a new system of advertising whereby ads are not placed on top of the organic search results, nor to the side, nor on a colored background, but actually within the list of organic results.  Is this a smart move?  Will Microsoft find itself on the end of a (meritorious) lawsuit for trademark infringement or unfair competition?  Probably not.  The news of this new approach broke on the RKG blog, and was subsequently confirmed, with comment from Microsoft, on the Search… [read post]

Erstwhile structured settlement "splogger of the century", John Jonas is spilling tears over getting suspended from Google Adwords for a trademark violation. Here's how he blubbed it on the John Jonas blog. The message is, be aware and respectful of other people's trademarks and copyrights! For the uninitiated, Google Adwords are those "originally intended to be useful"  pay per click ads that are peppered around virtually every Internet page. Some… [read post]

The CJEU has drained parts of the E-Commerce safe harbor, but by how much? When the CJEU handed down its decision in Google and Google France vs. Louis Vuitton on March 23, 2010, brand owners were both disappointed and optimistic.  Although the Court had held that because Google was not using third parties’ trademarks in its own commercial communications when it was offering them for selection as AdWords (meaning that there was no registered trademark infringement), the Court was… [read post]

If the content is hosted in the U.S., or in other nations with a notice and takedown system, it is usually trivial to get it removed with a Digital Millennium Copyright Act… [read post]
