Beverly "Bev" Stayart Must Think The Words "Serial Litigant" And "Don Quixote" Are Prettier Than "Cialis" Or "Levitra"

Law

Bev Stayart is taking her search engine profile into her own hands.

Google on Tuesday was sued in a Wisconsin court for allegedly violating the privacy rights of Beverly Stayart, an animal rights activist and the CFO and director of business development at Stayart Law Offices, the firm filing the complaint.The lawsuit claims that Google is responsible for suggesting the search term "bev stayart levitra" as a user types "bev stayart" and is profiting from this association through the sale of ads on search results pages triggered by those keywords.

Levitra is a sexual dysfunction drug, and thus a term to which some might wish to avoid being linked.

"Google is misleading consumers, in Wisconsin and throughout the world, by selling the keyword phrase 'bev stayart levitra' and placing 'sponsored links' advertisements for Levitra, other male sexual dysfunction drugs, and other medicines and products on the page 'bev stayart levitra' on Google's Web site," the complaint states.

You have to admire Bev Stayart.  Most people who run a Google or Yahoo or Alta Vista or Bing search on their own names don't go much past page two.  Beverly Stayart goes to eleven.

As we advised Beverly Stayart the last time we covered one of her lawsuits, all it takes is a little work to turn a bad search engine profile around.  Of course Beverly Stayart's detractors, such as Frederick "Fred" J. Otto, Intellectual Property Attorney and Computer Engineer, claimed that a little person like Bev Stayart can't beat the search engines at their own game.  But we think differently.  In under two years, Beverly Stayart has removed her personal association with Cialis and Levitra and Viagra and the like, to replace them with words like "serial litigant," "frequent filer," "frivolous lawsuit," "Section 230," and "Rule 11".

Bev Stayart is proof that you can fight City Hall, and even win. I nominate her for publication in the Library of Congress.

    I guess there's a lot of stiff competition for that linkage.

    Um, it is now suggested search #5 at "bev sta" and #2 if you get to the "y"
