QUOTE Google are going to launch Gbay very shortly.

I wonder if we will see litigation between the two giants over the use of "Gbay".

QUOTE That is definitely the google plan.

They are also launching a "Gpal" payment service

I suppose the Dan Brown case established a precedent in that now it's ok to plagiarise other peoples ideas.

I reckon Google would have to cut the adds for EBay which come up on every search.
