Germans finally get Gmail domain

Way back in 2005 Google launched Gmail inside Germany and found itself quickly banned from using the Gmail name because it was trademarked by another company. Google allegedly tried to buy the trademark for $250,000 in 2007. The trademark holder Daniel Giersch didn't sell.

Google has now announced the trademark has been transferred to it. Financial details of the transaction weren't disclosed, but I bet it cost a lot more than $250,000. German users should soon be able to access their e-mail using the Gmail.com domain.
