Submission + - Man sues to have 'Google' declared a generic word (paidcontent.org)

vu1986 writes: ""Arizona man David Elliott wants a court to declare that “google” is a word that means “search on the internet” and to cancel Google’s trademarks for the term.

Elliott filed the complaint after Google won a ruling this month that forced him to hand over more than 750 website names such as “googlegaycruises.com” and “googledonaldtrump.com.” He claims he needs the names to start a business based on “commerce.. charity, and more.”""

What's their conclusion? Just $806,386.19 if you order only 1 graphite helmet."
