End For Google Gmail In Germany

Google has suffered a defeat in the brand lawsuit around its e-mail service Gmail once more.

Google has been snubbed by the harmonization office at a European level to protect its brand in Europe.

The lawful trademark right owner Daniel Gierschof announced his “G-mail” today.

The young businessman had itself the brand “G-mail” in Germany already six years ago protected oneself. In turn Google offers its online e-mail service with the exception of Great Britain under the name Gmail. After a first judgement in front of German courts the service had to be renamed in Google mail.

At the opinion that the brand Gmail cannot be used for the e-mail service this has furhter consequences for Google. Google then would be forced presumably to rename Gmail in Google mail everywhere from this time on with the corresponding effects on the allocated electronic mail addresses not least by similar named disputes in Great Britain.

“G-mail” start under the much discussed brand name in April. The Internet domain Gmail.de also could already be taken for the test stage into operation.


  1. If the trade mark in Germany was registered before Google did then someone in Google should have picked it up. An oversight of this magnatude is unforgiveble by an orgnisation like Google. If you guys are as smart as I believe you are create something around the problem.
