Google now loses Trademark Dispute over ‘Gmail’ in Switzerland as well

At the moment, Google are experiencing one defeat after the other over its ‘Gmail’ trademark. After the search machine was only recently refused entry into the European trademark register because the German entrepreneur Daniel Giersch was asserting his rights to the designation ‘Gmail…und die Post geht richtig ab’, they have now had to accept another setback in Switzerland. Giersch has also protected his trademark there.

Google took action against the entrepreneur, maintaining that Giersch chose the trademark in bad faith. This opinion was certainly not shared by the judges of the Zurich Business Court. They threw the action out and declared that Google could assert no unique claims. Other than in Germany, where the search machine had to rename its service following its defeat in the legal dispute with Giersch, they will be able to actually retain their name in Switzerland. According to local law both Google and Giersch now have the right to use the name even if it was Giersch who had placed his application for trademark protection a few months before Google.
