Rosetta Stone Praises U.S. Court Of Appeals Ruling Reinstating Its Trademark Infringement Suit Against Google

Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE:RST), a leading provider of technology-based language-learning solutions, yesterday received a positive ruling in support of its 2009 suit against Google alleging the Internet search giant allowed third parties, including counterfeiters, to use Rosetta Stone's trademark for online advertisements without permission. The April 9th ruling by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit reverses a 2010 dismissal by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

“We are pleased with the U.S. Court of Appeals’ opinion,” said Rosetta Stone President & CEO Stephen Swad. “We believe that the unauthorized sale of our trademarks to third parties, including counterfeiters, is wrong as it harms and confuses American consumers and infringes upon and dilutes Rosetta Stone’s trademarks. We are confident that we will ultimately prevail in this case.”

Rosetta Stone company statement:

Rosetta Stone greatly appreciates today's opinion by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Rosetta Stone is deeply concerned about trademark infringement, including the rampant problem of online counterfeiters engaging in theft of intellectual property and confusing consumers regarding the products being offered for sale. Today's important decision by the Fourth Circuit allows Rosetta Stone's efforts against such infringement to proceed. We look forward to further proceedings in this matter.
