Google Getting Heavy With Google X Cloners
Barry Schwartz posts a translated french email allegedly sent from Google to one of the sites cloning the short lived Google X ...
... Google's homage to OS X reported last week. The post is at SearchEngineJournal and the translation reads:
It has come to our attention that you use functionalities related to the Google brand (commercial logos, Web pages, screenshots or other Google functionalities) on your site without the preliminary authorization of Google.
If you continue to use these functionalities related to the Google brand on your site, a Google representative will contact you.
We thank you for your comprehension.

I wouldn't want those things out there either if I were Google, i do wish they'd learn to be just a little more polite though - these guys really aren't doing any harm and would almost certainly comply with a polite but firm request... The way that reads, it sounds like GOOG are about to send the boys round heh...
