First and most important....Webkinz pet is called gooles. Both in white and pink.

Second the one called google as seen in the above photo they 2 completely different products

Google search engine is Google(s) is a stuffed animal and when Ganz did thier patent and copyright they did everything for stuffed animals not search enigines.


So there is no way to sue. They are 2 completely different products.

There are plenty of loop holes in the laws and they aren't there so that people can get away with 'stealing' a name. They are there so more and more products can be produced and sold.

If I wanted to make and sell a wooden desk,
call it Google(s),
and sell it in mass production ...
no one could sue me.
Ganz and GOOGLE search engine would have no case at all.

It is more completicated than this as far a the laws and the loop holes are concerned, but this is the simplist way to explain it.

Its called a "googles" not a "google" Also dixiecup is right about the old googles. I don't really think Ganz or Google Search Engine cares

It would have been addressed a LONG time ago if there was any concern about Copyright infringement of the name, really. MadTVStewart is right, though, the pet is a GOOGLES the search engine Google. That one letter alone probably makes all the difference in the world

It is perfectly legal, since they are spelled differently, and it was also used in the 1953 book Retrograde Evolution.
Oh, and apparently I am right, I should have read back in the first place, thank you MysticMist

Not to change the subject, well not chaning it, but if this is true it is the same thing that is going on right now between "Barbie" and "Bratz" dolls. The company the makes the Barbie is suing the company that makes Bratz, apparantly there was a person who worked at the Barbie Company dealing with creating products and then went to work for another company and then the Bratz doll came out. I don't know the whole story but that is jist of it.
