Partner Rami Yanni was recently quoted in an article in The Recorder, discussing the May 16, 2017 Ninth Circuit ruling that consumers' pervasive use of "Google" as a verb has not caused Google's trademark for its search engine to become generic. The article also mentioned and linked to Yanni's April 27, 2017 article about the case:
