I think that the American Chemical Society is grasping at straws. "Scholar" is so generic a term, so that I cannot imagine that Google would lose in a copyright infringement case.

Maybe the chemists are looking for a settlement to soothe their ruffled feathers!

The ACS has a snow ball's chance at winning this. Scholar is just too generic a term.

You are certainly correct.

But they don't sue over 'scholar' but their trademark "ACS's SciFinder ScholarĀ®" :wink:

Well, Google only used that one word, scholar. I still say that the suit will be thrown out of court.

Walter, the trademark SciFinder Scholar gives them exclusive use of that term, but not the word scholar. If so the OED would trademark the dictionary and rent English to the rest of us.

If you're interested in reading the nine page complaint that the ACS filed in U.S. District Court, it's available HERE (pdf-file!).
