Google Sued By Edible Arrangements For $209 Million

Popular food service company Edible Arrangements has sued Google for more than $200 million, alleging that its competitors' goods were unfairly prioritized in search results.

According to the complaint, filed Monday, when consumers search Google using the term "Edible Arrangements," Google's results treat that search as generic edible arrangements – including Edible Arrangements' competitors' goods.

"Defendant’s repeated and intentional placement of advertisements for Plaintiffs’ competitors in prominent locations throughout search results for “Edible Arrangements,” … is likely to cause confusion as to whether Plaintiffs’ products and services are affiliated with, originate from, and/or are endorsed by these competitors," said the complaint.
