David Fish sends this along:

Vulcan Golf, LLC filed a putative class action lawsuit against Google, Inc. and other defendants, including Oversee.net, Sedo LLC, Dotster, Inc. a/k/a revenuedirect.com. The Defendants sought to have the case thrown out on a motion to dismiss. Instead, the Court allowed much of the case to proceed and ordered the parties to brief whether the case should proceed as a class action lawsuit. Vulcan Golf, LLC v. Google Inc., 2008 WL 818346 (N. D. ILL., March 20, 2008) A copy of the judge’s ruling is available here. . . .The lawsuit alleged that the defendants have engaged in a massive scheme to use deceptive domain names on the Internet to generate billions of advertising dollars at the expense of the plaintiffs.

Interesting!
