Court Denies Google's Motion to Dismiss American Airlines Adwords Lawsuit

On October 24, 2007, Judge John McBryde, in a one-page order (download here), denied without comment Google, Inc.'s motion to dismiss (Vegas™Esq Blogged here) the trademark infrignement lawsuit filed by American Airlines, Inc. over Google's Adwords program (Vegas™Esq Blogged here). See American Airlines, Inc. v. Google, Inc., Case No. 4:07-cv-487 (N.D. Tex.).

So the court determined, at least at this stage, that American Airlines' complaint does state a claim upon which relief can be granted.

I wonder if Eric Goldman over at the Technology and Marketing Law Blog will have any comments. (His comments on the American Airlines complaint be found here).
