District Court Dismisses Rosetta Stone’s Adwords Lawsuit Against Google

I previously blogged (link here) about the Google Adwords trademark infringement lawsuit brought by language software company Rosetta Stone against Google. See Rosetta Stone LTD v. Google Inc., Case No. 09-cv-00736 (E.D. Va.).

On April 28, 2010, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia granted Google’s Motion to Dismiss. A sampling of the new coverage on the decision from Reuters, Marketwatch, Cnet, and Washington Post.

The order granting Google's Motion to Dismiss (link here) indicates that a memorandum explaining the basis for the decision will be forthcoming. We can’t wait. To be continued. . . .

Eric Goldman's Technology & Marketing Law Blog provides an excellent summary of the court's decision filed on August 3, 2010.]
