Canada to ban ‘fake’ ‘Google’ trademarks

AUSTRALIA is to stop using the words “Google” and “Google Maps” in advertising.

The government has said it will not use the terms in its advertisements.

“We’ve made clear that we won’t use the word Google or Google Maps in any advertising, nor any other public announcements, in the foreseeable future,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper said.

“The term Google is a trademark and a symbol that Google uses to identify itself.

We’ve taken steps to ensure that we don’t have to use those words in our advertising.”

Google is using the word “Google”.

But it is not registered trademark.

Mr Harper said the government was still “working through” its plans to trademark the term, which is registered under the “Internet Trademark Act”.

“We’re working through the issues around the word ‘Google’, and we’ll be working through them again with the Government of Canada in the next few months,” he said.

The federal government’s announcement comes amid calls from the opposition and civil liberties groups for Canada to ditch the word and instead focus on using the term “Internet”.

The “Google logo” is a logo of Google, Inc.
