Google Loses Mail Trademark in U.K.

“Google stopped using the Gmail name in the United Kingdom on Wednesday, ending a trademark dispute for now.

“The Gmail service there is now known as Googlemail.

“A Google representative said that the search giant decided to change the suffix after protracted wranglings with research firm Independent International Investment Research (IIIR), which uses the name G-mail to refer to a part of its financial analytics software.”
