Google sticks the screws on Scoogle

Trademark wars
Search engine outfit Google seems to be engaged in some heavy trademark wars down under. After settling a trademark dispute with an online booze outfit Groggle and getting it to change its name, Google is leaning on another company called Scoogle.

Owned by Colin Redmond and Josie Meadows the outfit sells eyewear and is named after Meadows's family name Scougal. According to AP the two owners said that Google had "essentially just picked a fight" with them.

"It's just bullying the modified version of the Scoogle family name," the source said. They said they would have to spend "at least $5000" in out of court legal costs.
