Breaking! Google & American Airlines Settle Trademark Dispute Confidentially

Image: Google’s good

American Airlines has privately settled its trademark suit with Google. Case number 4:07-cv-00487, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, is history. Both companies are tight-lipped about the confidential settlement.

The timing of this settlement is so close to the related Tiffany v. eBay trademark ruling that it suggests a causative link.

From the start of this case I questioned why American brought contributory charges against Google, without also suing the primary infringers who were apparently their licensed agents.

Again I ask: when do IP law cases end? There’s clearly more to learn about how this got resolved.
