Org seeks legal recourse for blog name

Yahoo! News is carrying a story that could ripple through the blogging world – not so much that a blog has claimed another entity’s name, but more about the willingness of a group to seek legal recompense.

The story says, "Christian evangelical group Jews for Jesus is suing Google Inc., saying a Web log hosted through the Internet search leader’s Blogspot service infringes its trademark. ‘We have a right to our own name and Google has allowed the use of our name on Blogspot without our permission,’ said Susan Perlman, associate executive director with Jews for Jesus.’Our reputation is at stake,’ Perlman told Reuters."
