BMW goes after porn search engine

If you go to AskJolene.com, and type in a search for "BMW", there will be, shockingly enough, adult pictures and videos that have BMW cars in them.

BMW has gone after AskJolene with the claim that they are violating BMW's trademark. Maybe they think because this is a porn site, they're going to stand a chance of winning, wheras if they made the same case against Google, they'd be laughed out of court (and Google can return more infringing pages than AskJolene).

Search Engine Webmasters have no responsibility for the content they index. Most of the indexing happens automatically anyway. Grr snark.
