Type of site
Groovle is a web search site which offers customers the ability to customise their home page. The underlying service is provided by Google but the company is owned and operated entirely independently.
In December 2009, Google lost a court case in which they claimed that the groovle domain was too similar to its own and control should be passed over to them. Zak Muscovitch, the attorney for Groovle, stated after the case that, "Most people use Google, most people appreciate Google, most people love Google ... but I think most people appreciate when the little guy takes on the giant - and wins."
