I just got word that Google lost the
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."
