In the US, the legal standard for determining whether one trademark infringes
another is "likelihood of confusion". That is, would two people in the relevant
consuming public likely confusion the origin of the goods or services? That
determination is a question of fact for a court. Reasonable minds can disagree.

Emil's comment is spot on. If the tables were reversed, Google would probably be
all over you. The first user of a trademark in the US is the party that acquires
the rights to the mark. While it appears that AG is the first user, the other
party is Google. They probably use $100 bills for paper towels. You have to pick
your battles. Good luck.
