    A Druish Search Engine?

    Oy vey!

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Religiously devout Jews barred by rabbis from surfing the Internet may now "Koogle" it on a new "kosher" search engine, the site manager said on Sunday.

    Yossi Altman said Koogle, a play on the names of a Jewish noodle pudding and the ubiquitous Google, appears to meet the standards of Orthodox rabbis, who restrict use of the Web to ensure followers avoid viewing sexually explicit material.

    The site, at קוגל - פורטל לציבור הדתי, omits religiously objectionable material, such as most photographs of women which Orthodox rabbis view as immodest, Altman said.

    The U.N.'s WIPO organization has a history of confiscating "sounds like" domains and giving them to the trademark holders. It seems to me that Google could take this domain any time they feel like it.

    Yes, that's probably what they're gonna do if Koogle ever makes more than $20 per day...

    Yep, as soon as Koogle starts to have a lot of traffic, they'll take the domain away Same thing happened with another website a few years ago
