to google or not to google - Google cracking down on trademark

Some are complaining that the term Google is now a commonly used verb and thus is subject to be used as such.. not so according to the courts. Should be fun to watch, however, until hten you can likely expect the likes of many blogs and domain owners containing the term "google" to be doing some serious ass kissing!
