Google to crack down on the misuse of its trademarked name


DailyTech reported last month that Google was concerned over the use of its trademarked name in reference to general internet search. This concern was expressed after the word "google" popped up in the 11th edition of the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Now the company intends to crack down on the misuse of its name.

What has Google upset is people who use phrases like "I'm going to google it" or "I just googled his name on the Internet and found what I was looking for." "We think it's important to make the distinction between using the word 'Google' to describe using Google to search the Internet and using the word 'google' to generally describe searching the Internet. It has some serious trademark issues,” said a representative for Google.
