Gogo Tribe v. Google Corp Featured Case

Nevertheless, he proceeds in a representative capacity on behalf of the Gogo and Yao tribes of Tanzania and alleges that Google and Yahoo misappropriated their names, respectively, without acknowledgment or compensation. Plaintiff asserts that he has standing to sue on the tribes\' behalf because the mother of his paternal grandfather (a/k/a great-grandmother) was Gogo and the grandmother of his maternal grandmother (a/k/a great-great-grandmother) was Yao.
