 Google "wins" trademark case against ABWF

Big win for Google. The company  settled a long-running trademark infringement lawsuit over trademark protected keywords that trigger the display of ads with American Blind and Wallpaper Factory, which was scheduled to go to trial in the U.S. District Court for Northern California in November. Google agreed not to make any changes to its AdWords trademark policy that would adversely affect American Blind in exchange for the company’s dropping its claims. The settlement included no payment.

Google Inc. v. American Blinds & Wallpaper Factory Inc., 5:03-cv-05340-JF (N.D. Cal. settled August 31, 2007)
