Google wins trademark

A federal judge yesterday dismissed a trademark infringement lawsuit filed by language software maker Rosetta Stone against Google. In a suit first filed in 2009, Rosetta claimed Google profits by allowing rivals that pirate its technology to buy the top “sponsored link” ad on search results pages. Consumers who search for "Rosetta Stone" on the popular search engine and click on a “sponsored ad” may be visiting the website of a software pirate that purports to be Rosetta, but in reality sells a sub-standard product, the lawsuit claimed.
