Arthur Frommer gets Frommer brand back from Google

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Travel guru Arthur Frommer says he has reacquired rights to his travel guidebook brand from Google and that he intends to resume publishing Frommer guidebooks.

Google acquired the Frommer brand last summer from the Wiley publishing company, but last month Skift.com reported that Google was "quietly pulling the plug" on publishing Frommer's books.

Google refused comment at the time, but Arthur Frommer confirmed in a phone call from his home Wednesday night that he had reacquired rights to the brand.
