Yet Another Gmail

By Dave

You would think that when launching a product, especially a world wide release, that you would take a team of lawyers and computer geeks and have them scavenge the world looking for what could be trademark problems.

Google is having problems again with the Gmail name as a company in China is now having problems with the name.

Techdirt with the story:

The latest, however, is in China, where a Beijing company is offering web-based email under the Gmail name with a logo that looks quite like Google’s. However, in this case, the company notes that they launched their Gmail (including the logo) long before Google launched Gmail. Of course, even if that’s the case, Google may have a decent case of trademark infringement on the logo. It’s clearly designed to look something like the Google logo (not the Gmail logo) — with the same “G” and a similar font for the other letters.
