Law professors take on the Jews for Jesus lawsuit

December 29, 2005 at 7:00 am 5 comments

Eric Goldman, a professor at Marquette Law School, has written this post on the lawsuit that Jews for Jesus filed against Google, host of the Jews for Jesus blog (http://jewsforjesus.blogspot.com/), which, as previously noted, has no affiliation with the religious group. Goldman also provided a link to the complaint, which can be found here. This is a fantastic post, including a discussion of trademark infringement and third-level subdomains and differences between this lawsuit and the Geico-Google keyword ads lawsuit. Goldman’s conclusion? I’ll leave that to him:

This lawsuit shares one strong commonality with the Google keyword lawsuits–the plaintiff is suing the wrong party. If Jews for Jesus really believes that the blog is infringing its trademark, sue the blogger, but leave the blog service provider out of it.
