Google Loses Domain Fight Over Froogles.com

An ICANN arbitration panel has rejected Google’s challenge of a Web site named Froogles.com, meaning that the Froogles.com name will remain with the current owner. Also, the current owner is opposing Google’s attempt to register Froogle with the US Patent and Trademark Office, contending the mark would be an infringement of his Froogles.com mark. Google has filed 18 domain name disputes at the ICANN panel, challenging names like googlesex.com, google.biz and googleme.com. It has won every challenge but Froogles.com
