  • Rosetta Stone, a leading language-learning software producer, sued Google for trademark infringement and dilution based on Google's sale of Rosetta Stone's marks as keywords. In 2010, the District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia entered summary judgment against Rosetta Stone's trademark claims (direct, contributory, and vicarious trademark infringement; dilution), and dismissed Rosetta Stone's unjust enrichment claim. See Rosetta Stone Ltd. v. Google, Inc., 730 F. Supp. 2d 531 and 732 F. Supp. 2d 628 (E.D. Va. 2010).
