No Gmail for Google in Germany
Google lost a court battle in Germany over the Gmail trademark. The name is registered to Daniel Giersch and has been since 2000. Google has been trying to get it since the mail service started in 2004. Google was also told not to take the case further. The company used googlemail.com as the mail domain. Gmail may be shorter, but the German language is filled with so many compound words that hardly anyone should notice the extra letters.
