    • Google is facing an attempt to file a class action lawsuit over its US policy of allowing companies to use trade marks they don’t own to trigger their internet adverts. If it gathers enough participants, the suit could be costly for the search giant.

       

      Class action law suits are US legal cases in which many companies or people in a similar position band together to collectively sue a company. A company called Firepond has sued Google and wants other companies who believe their trade marks have been violated to join it in one big case.
