Googles v. Google 

Stelor Productions, the company that owns and operates, has launched trademark proceedings with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office against Google. The complaint alleges that the ubiquitous search engine site is in breach of copyright laws by offering services aimed at children. Stelor also charges that Google's mark is confusingly similar to its own, and is opposing Google's trademark application to cover a "long list of 'Google' goods and services, including children's books, stickers and children's clothing."

Googles, which  is mostly concerned with Google's new Froogle price matching service, ultimately wants Google to keep its name away from children's content, merchandise and services.
