Seems Jeremy Shoemaker aka Shoemoney is suing someone who is being allowed to advertise on Google for his trademarked term - a Google T&C no no - and according to TechCrunch, the person may be a Google employee.
In the past Google AdWords reps were encouraged and given money to use the system so they would better know their clients questions. Hopefully, this was not the money being used.
Jeremy had tried through Cease and Desist letters and had to get a court order to get the name of the person violating his trademark, TechCrunch reported. Google did not comment and the person has yet to come forward to comment.
