BharatMatrimony files complaint against Google with CCI

 |  February 2, 2012

Matrimonial website BharatMatrimony has filed a complaint against Google with the Competition Commission of India. It alleges an abuse of dominance with respect to Google’s AdWords practices.

This is not the first time BharatMatrimony and Google have sparred over AdWords. In 2009, BharatMatrimony’s owner, Consim, brought a trademark infringement suit before the Madras High Court, claiming that Google used registered trademarks as keywords for sponsored links. The court ruled in Google’s favor in 2010.
