Always willing to embrace technology, TS turned to the Internet for the lowdown on Ernst & Young this week. We keyed in the words, hit the search key and sat back waiting to be enlightened. The results made for interesting reading. The top result at 69% relevance was E&Y's site itself. Equally important, according to those stats, was SmutIsland.com, a less illuminating site for the discerning surfer hunting information about the world of accountancy. E&Y is far from alone in being victimised this way. At any one time there are about 300 cases before the US courts involving the misuse of names by websites. A friendly lawyer tells TS that attitudes to this vary from country to country. Germans are indifferent, the Dutch have a problem with people appropriating the names of more salacious sites to garner traffic while we Brits think it all a storm in a teacup. Maybe not at E&Y, mind.
