Google loses Gmail trademark
Google loses “Gmail” trademark case | Press Esc
A court in Germany today banned Google from using the name “Gmail” for its popular webmail service following a trademark suit filed by the founder of G-Mail.
Daniel Giersch (33), started using the name G-Mail in 2000, four years before Google released “Gmail”.
“Google infringed the young businessman’s trademark that had been previously been registered,” said the Hanseatic Higher Regional Court in its judgement.
