Flowers, LLC and manager Hur Guler have been sued by 1-800-Flowers.com, Inc. for alleged trademark infringement. (case number 2:2011cv01038 filed in New York Eastern District Court) 1-800-Flowers claims that the defendant has engaged in trademark infringement by bidding on various keywords and purchasing sponsored ads using various search engines, Google, Yahoo and Bing.

Flower Wars
It is Flowers, LLC's position that consumers deserve the right to choose between any number of floral delivery options, and that placing a sponsored ad, which in no way uses the Plaintiff’s trademarks, does not constitute infringement. A recent decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (Network Automation, Inc. v. Advanced Sys. Concepts, Inc.) supports Flowers, LLC’s position. Through the O’Connell Law Office, in Arlington, Massachusetts, Flowers, LLC intends to defend its position on its own behalf and on behalf of each other advertiser seeking fairness in the marketplace.
