General Motors is suing online lending exchange LendingTree in a lawsuit that alleges trademark infringement and cyberpiracy.

The giant automaker last week asked a federal court in the Eastern District of Michigan to block LendingTree from using the Web site, www.gmac.realestate.com, to promote its lending services because the domain name is almost identical to GMAC’s www.gmacrealestate.com.
