New name after Trademark Dispute: ‘Gmail’ is now called ‘Google Mail’ in Germany

Google’s introduction of the email service ‘Gmail’ already had a bad start. First the search machine hit the headlines in America for failing to register the trademark in time, and then followed a trademark dispute in Germany. As the name ‘Gmail’ is already registered in Germany in class 38 for electronic services, Google has now renamed its service. In Germany from now on the service will run under the name ‘Google Mail’.

The search machine has consequently drawn the logical conclusions from a name dispute with Daniel Giersch. The owner of the German trademark ‘Gmail..und die Post geht richtig ab’ carries out an email service under “my-g-mail.com”. In March of this year he had cautioned those users of Google ‘Gmail’ services who in Germany had offered ‘Gmail’ invitations in great numbers over the auction platform ebay (as we have reported). This trade in invitations .was perceived by him to be an infringement of his trademark rights. There followed a trademark dispute as Google and Giersch could not come to any agreement. The search machine decided to alter their name.

If you call up “gmail.google.com” today, the entry page now appears under the designation of ‘Google Mail’. The URL as well as the email address still however carry a ‘gmail’ in their name. This new service from Google is still in the beta test phase. Regular registration is not possible. When the official start of ‘Google Mail’ will take place is not yet known.
