Geico and Google settle trade mark/keyword advertising lawsuit

Google's sale of GEICO's trade marks for use in keyword-triggered ‘sponsored link’ advertising did not create a likelihood of confusion where the keyword-triggered advertisements did not include GEICO's marks in the headings or text, but a settlement between the parties prevented the court from deciding Google's liability for trade mark infringement for keyword-triggered advertisements that use GEICO's marks.
