    Is JewTube easily confused with YouTube?

    Apparently, Google doesn't have a sense of humor when it comes to puns related to its YouTube video site.

    The company is preparing to challenge the use of the name "JewTube" for a Jewish-related video site on trademark grounds, according to a filing with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which was reported on by WebProNews.

    A lawyer for NetParty, listed as the owner of JewTube, did not immediately return a call seeking comment. A Google spokesman said he was checking into the matter.

    Meanwhile, Google rival Yahoo apparently wasn't so bothered by Jewhoo, a Jewish-oriented blog. However, Yahoo did try to block the use of Ya-Hooka, a directory of marijuana-related links, back in 1999.
  2. Further evidence that those Jews are runnin' things...
  3. Guess who owns facebook and starbucks :D :p :D
