EU Gives Thumbs Up To Google In Louis Vuitton Case



ADOTAS – So the EU has ruled in favor of Google in a suit thrown against the firm from Louis Vuitton and other French luxury companies that claimed the search company violated the manufacturers’ trademarks by allowing counterfeiters to use brand names as links to sell fake merchandise. The European Court of Justice said the accusers should go to French courts to seek reparations. The court said that the search engine cannot be held liable for data it has stored at the request of an advertiser unless it has failed to block or remove access to the ad after learning that the advertiser is acting illegally by selling fakes.
