Google alleges online parody violates its trademark

" Silicon Valley Biz Ink" - February 13, 2004

It's very realistic, and even routine, says IP attorney Robert Andris, another outside legal observer, who discounts the parody defense because Booble does not comment directly on Google.

"If [Booble] doesn't back down, I'm sure Google will go forth and file suit," says Andris, a partner with Redwood City-based Ropers Majeski Kohn & Bentley LLP. "I see the argument going both ways; but on balance, I would think Google has the upper hand."
