    Can you sue over the use of a made up word or expression? Was the word was trademarked? This girl needs to get over it. After all, James Joyce never sued anybody after the scientific community co-opted his word "quark" from Finnegean's Wake.

    Well, I was likening them pondering sueing google over basing their name on a number, googol, to that of someone being sued over having a company named billion.. or something 'based-off' of the number billion.
    For example, if I named my tobacco company infinitee and say I based it off the concept of infinity, because that is the number of lives my product would take, then whoever coined the term 'infinity' would sue me.
    Pretty dumb eh?

    So why don't we sue Trillian? :P

    Exactly my point. Exactly. It's so commonly used that it has become public domain. Like Kleenex. This lady must be on crack, because googol is explained in every grade school math text(or should be), and I don't see her sueing over the use of it there..
