Chinese company says it is their's


Google has been sued by a Chinese company which claims its name is too close to its own.

Guge Science and Technology said Google's commercial name had led to thecompany being constantly disturbed by people calling up its office trying to contact the search engine. He said it was just a small matter for Google to change its and it would not be bothered again.

In China, Google uses a transliteration of the English word "Google" and it appears in Guge's commercially registered name.

The case had been accepted by a court in Beijing's Haidian district, the Beijing News reported. Beijing Guge's refused to tell Reuters about its operations or its products or services.
