Google To Be Sued in UK For Trademark-Linked Ads 235

nuke-alwin writes "Channel 4 news in the UK is reporting that Google will be sued by for the way it sells advertising. Adverts from competitors will now be displayed when searching for some trademarks. Google says consumers will benefit. Some trademarks become so familiar that all similar products are known by the trademark name: Coke and Hoover, for example. I think searching for these kinds of words should allow competitors to advertise their similar products."
