Google lawyers hopping

Google lawyers hopping: On Monday, a trial begins in which Geico is attempting to keep Google from attaching ads for rival companies when a Google user is searching for information about Geico. (Okay. Let’s try that and see what ads appear if we search using the word GEICO — here’s a screen shot of my search results.) And now, John Battelle blogs that the American Chemical Society is suing Google claiming the product Google Scholar infringes on its own product, SciFinder Scholar, which proves once again that despite having a Ph.D. in chemistry and obviously knowing at what temperature ice melts, one can still not know when one does not have a snow ball’s chance in hell. (Who’s going sue next? Rhodes Scholar? Fulbright Scholar?)
