I just got word that Google lost the French lawsuit we reported on Monday involving the Louis Vuitton trademark. I do not have any more details at the moment, only that they lost. I will try to update this entry when I have more information.
Postscript: I was just sent this information from Bloomberg news. "Google Inc. must pay LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA 300,000 euros ($375,800) for breaching copyright rules with its advertising service, a French Appellate court ruled."
Postscript 2: News stories are finally now appearing:

- Louis Vuitton says court upholds Google ruling, Reuters
- The Paris Court of Appeals Confirms Sanctions against Google for Trademark Counterfeiting, Unfair Competition and Misleading Advertising, Louis Vuitton Press Release
