Judge Won’t Dismiss Google Trademark Lawsuit
A US judge has refused Google’s recent request to dismiss the case.
In making his decision to allow the case to move forward, U.S. District Court Judge Jeremy Fogel ruled the public has an interest in whether AdWords, the company’s popular pay-per-click advertising system, violates U.S. trademark law.
It wasn’t a complete loss for Google as they still have a motion for sanctions before another judge.
“Judge Fogel rightfully concluded that they did not prove that two of their marks are protectable, and we are confident that they will be unable to prove their remaining claims at trial,” Michael Kwun, Google’s litigation counsel said in a statement.
