Google Weighs Appeal of Trademark Ruling

February 08, 2005|From Associated Press

Internet search engine Google Inc. said it was weighing a possible appeal after a Paris court ordered it to pay 200,000 euros, or $260,000, plus costs to luxury goods maker Louis Vuitton for breach of trademark.

The high court in central Paris awarded the damages in a decision late Friday and ordered Google to stop displaying advertisements for Vuitton's rivals whenever Internet users typed Vuitton's name or other trademarks into the search engine.

"We're studying the ruling," said Google France spokeswoman Myriam Boublil. "No decision's been taken yet on an appeal."
