One Kings Lane Inc. Key Developments

HD Buttercup Sues One Kings Lane for Trademark Misuse

HD Buttercup is suing One Kings Lane for trademark infringement, saying the online retailer used its name in Google ads to draw business. In the suit filed in June in U.S. District Court, Central District of California, HD Buttercup alleges the One Kings Lane misappropriated its name and registered trademark in ads posted on Google, attempting to pass itself off as associated with HD Buttercup and siphon off potential Buttercup customers. The suit seeks to stop the e-commerce retailer from further use of its name and seeks unspecified damages and attorneys fees. It s asking for an order requiring One Kings Lane to divulge all information on any gains from its use of the HD Buttercup name. In its complaint, HD Buttercup said One Kings Lane employed Google AdWords to advertise online, noting that advertisers using the program create ads for their goods and services and tie them to certain relevant keywords and phrases they believe consumers will use in their search queries. When a Google searcher uses those keywords, the AdWords program displays the ad above the actual search results. HD Buttercup said it believes One Kings Lane selected the HD Buttercup mark and variations as a keyword relevant to its goods and services. Essentially, that means that a user searching for HD Buttercup would trigger Google s placement of a One Kings Lane advertisement before or above any HD Buttercup search results, it said. It claims that One King s Lane also misappropriated the HD Buttercup marks by inserting them into their actual ads, thereby ensuring that any user searching for HD Buttercup would see and ad labeled HD Buttercup but that was actually created by One Kings Lane. Clicking on the ad would bring the searcher to One Kings Lane.
