Psion, which claims that the Netbook word belongs to it has been able to convince Google and Google has decided to remove the Netbook keyword from the Google Ads.
Psion has never been a happy since the word netbook started gaining popularity. I wonder, what would happen to those websites who use the word netbook in their domain name. Chippy from UMPCportal contacted Sasha, the owner of netbooknews.de and this was his reaction:
“I am shocked. 50% of my ad income comes through Google and i definitely have a problem now. I am gonna try to get some reactions of the Taiwanese “Netbook” manufacturers after the weekend”
