    Keyword Copyrights?
    Here is a can a worms for any legal beagles.You search out the keyword abestweb on Google and up pops 1,150,00 listings. Does Haiko not own that keyword on the internet and should he not be paid for any sites using it in their metatags? This to me is copy right infingement and only his site should appear using that keyword.Anyone else using it is liable including Google. I believe anyone having a good domain that includes a popular domain name that is a good keyword has some recourse. Food for thought!

    Google isn't showing SERPs based on metatags. In fact it can be argued that Google isn't even looking at them. This just means ABestWeb is mentioned somewhere in the content on many of those sites being returned in the natural listings..

    All those people bidding on 'ABestWeb' ...that's a different story. Actually, just noticed Clickbooth bidding on 'ABestWeb' in paid search even after Kellie's two threads that outed them.

    Yeppers Abestweb has some trademark marketing traction. I see www.freelanceworkexchange.com has some affiliates installing the istbar BHO as part of their promotions. Amazing no one bids PPCSE on the term Adwhores and it's shows clean on siteadvisor alerts.

    Usually those sites with abestweb mentioned are linking to this site, so that's good. But you're allowed to mention names like that.
