CYBERsitter Sues Google for Trademark Infringement in AdWords

CYBERsitter LLC v. Google, Inc., CV12-5293 (C.D. Cal. complaint filed June 18, 2012)

CYBERsitter competes with Net Nanny and ContentWatch (apparently both owned by the same entity, ContentWatch) in the Internet filtering software niche. CYBERsitter claims ContentWatch ran keyword ads triggered on its trademark with ad copy like:

CYBERsitter | Net
Protect Your Children with #1 rated CYBERsitter Software. Just $29.99

The complaint version I saw didn’t include any screenshots of the ads in question, so we’re missing some key info. Most obviously, the complaint implies, but doesn’t specify, that the ads linked to The complaint does alllege that doesn’t sell CYBERsitter’s competitive product.
