Google (...) lost a domain dispute to Oakville, Ont.-based Groovle, a website that allows users to upload photos and create a customized online portal.
A three-person panel composed of two retired American judges and one law professor rejected Google's claim that the smaller website's name was "confusingly similar," effectively giving it clearance to continue operating. The case is only the second time Google has lost a domain name dispute in 65 actions, with the other being Froogles in 2004.

That they lost was more to do with the domain name. If you look at the website, all they are doing is adding a background image with a Google search in it. Blatant exploitation of Google. Not sure going after their domain name will be the end of it.
