Google Sued Over Site Penalty By KinderStart.com

by , Comments

Reuters reports that KinderStart.com is suing Google over "downgrading its search-result ranking without reason or warning." There are a total of seven counts to the suit (download PDF);

  1. Violation of the right to free speech under the U.S. Constitution and the California Constitution
  2. Sherman Act Section 2: Monopolization
  3. Unfair competition under California Business & Professional Code 172000
  4. Unfair competition under California Business & Professional Code 17040
  5. Breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing
  6. Defamation and libel
  7. Negligent interference with prospective economic advantage

I have my additional thoughts here, but I would expect Danny to comment on this later today (he is a bit busy now).
