Google knocks back Groggle site in name suit

The web giant has served an Australia-based liquor price comparison site with a legal letter to change its name

An Australian online start-up called Groggle has received a legal letter from Google's lawyers requesting it cease trading and hand over its domain name

Groggle received the legal letter from Google's Australian lawyer Middletons on Thursday last week requesting the company cease trading under the name Groggle Pty Ltd and handover the domain name it had registered.

Groggle was intended to be a location-based liquor price comparison website search service allowing consumers to find the cheapest liquor price in a particular area.
