Google Finally Gets Right To Gmail Trademark In Germany

gmail-de-logoWhen Google launched Gmail in Germany in 2005, it was quickly barred from using the Gmail name for its email product there. German entrepreneur Daniel Giersch, after all, had registered the 'G-mail' trademark (short for Giersch mail)?for his physical and electronic mail service in Germany in 2000, long before Google had even announced its own service. Instead of 'Gmail,' German Internet users who wanted to use Gmail had to go to Google tried to appeal this decision, but ran out of legal options in 2007, after?Europe's Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market rejected its appeal. For a long time, it seemed like that was the end of the story, but last week Google quietly settled its dispute with Giersch. According to Germany's GoogleWatchBlog, the domain and the Gmail trademark were transferred to Google on April 13.
