Google settles with Groggle over trademark

The Australian online start-up changes its name to Drinkle, following six months of negotiations with the search giant.

After an extended negotiation process between Internet giant Google and Aussie online start-up Groggle, the two have reached a settlement that has involved Groggle changing its name to Drinkle.

Groggle founder Cameron Collie told ZDNet Australia that after a six-month negotiation period, the two companies have reached a settlement with undisclosed terms that has Groggle relinquishing its domain names and trademarks to Google and moving to a new Drinkle.com domain.

"The site will be exactly as it was before but just with a new brand name," he said of the price-comparison site for alcohol. "It's the same typeface with a 'D' instead of a 'G'."
