HaHa, nice - I`ll sue you for being better than me.

I get crap like this all the time, but it`s more like "I found out someone listed me as having Genital Warts on you website when I (my friend, my boss, etc.) Googled my name. Then if a post gets removed for some TOU violation they blame me for still being on Google.

It`s surprising how many people don`t know that Google determines their listings by copying random information and that webmasters are not responsible for what content from their sites end up on search engines, how it is displayed, or where it ranks.

I would be shocked if any attorney accepted that case. You can copyright names but now words found in the dictionary. Pathetic.

If it really does not relate to that keyword at all, it wouldn`t be ranked higher than his site. Learn you some SEO.

Well if a "jedi" is going to sue Tesco for not letting him wear a hood, then sueing someone over a petty internet matter isn`t that wierd.

Sue-happy? Maybe your buisness is failing for other reasons and now you must compensate buy sueing?? Sad, very sad.

This reminds me of a lawsuit a while back from a guy to a website owner. He admitted that he hotlinked a pic off the website and wanted it put back up because it was a main point of his site. He, in effect, stole the image and was upset that it disappeared.

Am I the only person who noticed that the address not blurred is the recipient who most likely posted this on the internet so everyone could lawl with him? Everyone`s trying to track him down when he isn`t the douche who sent it...

His niche business can`t be doing well if he`s resorting to threatening to sue over the use of similar key words

The fact that everything is blurred out is rendered completely obsolete when the guy`s e-mail address, which happens to be his name, is displayed.

Also, if only the address were blurred out and the full text shown, it would have been easier to read, and probably a lot funnier.

They need to get some perspective on life and realise that they have no grounds to sue, however, it is both impolite and annoying to use a keyword to get higher on google when your site has nothing to do with that keyword. Not so much for other sites trying to get higher, but for people who are looking for things related to said keyword and just get a bunch of stuff completely unrelated.

You kind of just look like a douche when you make such a big deal out of it, though.

This can`t be real. The only comeback for this would be to say "No, YOU remove YOUR site from Google!" It is so strange that they are saying that they "optimized" their site to be #1 and now they are mad that they are #2 - then I guess you will just have to "opitmize" a little better!

Our friend Singh has just as much right to be #1 on Google as anyone else.

For that matter, on what grounds would the #2 site sue them? I hate it when people go around saying they want to sue this person or that but don`t have any actual legal reason to do so.

Lionhart I think you`re missing the ball on the argument here.

Nattechs last post acknowledges that it isn`t illegal. He does show it being against google`s guidelines so they might have issues with it. Both of your last statements were pretty far off the mark.

> What if a dry cleaner on the south end of town started advertising... cars?

You deal with it and stop whining. A business can advertise, buy or sell whatever it wants, its not limited to a "core" product. If it is making blatantly untrue advertising claims though, such as saying it sells cars when it actually doesn`t, you can sue for false advertising under the Trade Practices/Trade Descriptions Act (Oz) or equivalent local law, or complain to Dept Consumer Affairs and Fair Trading (again, or your local equivalent).

Ultimately though, too many people think they can sue when they can`t - in any civil suit, you have to prove personal injury, loss or disadvantage. Since the laundry didn`t actually sell any cars, the Judge would determine that your business was in no way impacted negatively.

Dear Google, I demand that you remove anyone from your search engine with the name Rick because that`s my name and those others aren`t me.

Nettech makes a valid point. However, the person that sent the email did it in a very poor stance. Take it up with google or send a professional email. Not a whiny threat to sue with no bases.

Point taken, but it still stinks of `false advertising`. Google actually has guidelines (as I`m sure all engines do) that deal with this:

"Avoid tricks intended to improve search engine rankings. A good rule of thumb is whether you`d feel comfortable explaining what you`ve done to a website that competes with you. Another useful test is to ask, `Does this help my users? Would I do this if search engines didn`t exist?`"

While it may not be illegal (false advertising certainly is), it may well be against Google`s acceptable criteria for ranking. The guy probably has recourse with Google to remove the site from that particular search result...

Nettech, I understand your anology, but internet marketing is an entirely different realm alltogether. Most of what`s on the internet is fake. That`s why you always assume a female character on World of Warcraft is a man, why you call "SHOPPED" on most of the pics you see, and why you look at more than one site if you`re buying something online.

If a person went through all the trouble to travel to a dry cleaners to buy a car, I can understand your point. But on "Teh Internetz", another store is just a click away. Which is why this person so upset at being "Number 2" on a google search seems anal.

Clearly he didn`t optimise his site that well if a non-related site ranks higher on google than his own one.

Dude nettech, if I want to buy a car (or whatever) I wouldn`t just pop into the first site I see and that`s it. I would compare prices, values, etc. If I notice that the site in question does not sell cars at all, I would just move to the next one.
Seriously, who says: "Uhm, I think I`ll buy a car on the Internet. Yeah, the first site in the Google results page should do. *clicks* Oh, they don`t sell cars. Well, no car for me I guess! *shuts down computer*"

Just a discussion point here... Haven`t looked up any regs or laws... BUT...

What if a dry cleaner on the south end of town started advertising... cars? They run ads, their website has the keywords, and when you look up in the yellow pages under cars, there they are. Not only are they there, but somehow they managed to get that nice bold listing. And they`re listed first in the newsapaper as a car dealer.

There`s only one other car dealer in town. The real one. He`s up north and has spent a lot of time and money on advertising, market analysis, mailings, etc. But somehow the cleaners gets all the attention. Most people go there first, only to find out it`s not true. Some of those people look again, some of those people say "I`m not buying a car in this town!"

Is it false advertising? Deception? Actionable?

I welcome your thoughts... (My analogy may not be `all that`, but you get the idea...)

There are a couple of hints this moron should have received before posting his email:

1. Learn to type English better - you sound like your not very educated.

2. Learn the law. You don`t have a leg to stand on in ANY court.
