Is this not copyright infringement?

Are Google okay with this?

Hi,

Just came across another example of what i thought was google bombing, only there seem to be no links to the page in question - type in "french military victories" and hit the 'I'm feeling lucky' button (i.e. the number one result) and you get directed to a page that copies Google's Did you mean idea, replacing it with Did you mean "french military defeats"?

They've copied Google's logo and style - is this not copyright infringement? I only ask because it seems the site must be sponsored by the present Bush government, in its anti-french sentiments.

It amazes me the things people spend their time doing!

Nice find :) made me laugh anyway...

I would say that this is copyright infringement, they are using the Google logo.
