Google v Scroogle

Friday, January 21st, 2011

Google in Australia has already taken proceedings against other companies allegedly infringing its trademark, such as Groggle (Groggle is now named Drinkle and the proceedings have settled).

Now Google has a new ‘infringer’ in its sites, a family owned company called Scoogle.  The name Scoogle comes from a modification to the family name of Scougal, and sells eyewear ie: nothing to do with Google’s own business.

A source close to Scoogle says that Google is “…just bullying the modified version of the Scoogle family name”.

Google itself hasn’t yet commented – watch this space!
