The decision [claranet.scu.edu] happened a few weeks ago but I do not know if it was reported at WW. Seems like a pretty strong opinion on permitting the purchase of other's trademarks in order to trigger ads. Although as discussed, this issue is far from over.

Curious in what way it came in handy?

I don't know anything about the Lanham Act but selling a trademark as a keyword and even suggesting it in the keyword suggestion tool sounds to me as though Google are using the trademark in the everyday sense of the word "use".

I wonder what constitutes "use" as far as this Lanaham Act is concerned?
