Google Goes After JewTube

NOTE: I had a sudden thought while composing this story: Death by 1000 Papercuts is on a Google server. I wonder how liberal their policies are? Well, I guess we'll find out.

Lemme get this straight: "Jew" or "Tube" or "You" can't be trademarked by themselves, but "YouTube" can be. And "JewTube" can't be. Because they rhyme?

From the story by CNET's Elinor Mills:
Apparently, Google doesn't have a sense of humor when it comes to puns related to its YouTube video site.

The company is preparing to challenge the use of the name "JewTube" for a Jewish-related video site on trademark grounds, according to a filing with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which was reported on by WebProNews. - Bigger, Better!.
