Google Finally Nabs German Gmail Trademark

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.

Why Google Isn't Growing (GOOG)

Source: The Business Insider

Google CEO Larry Page can be forgiven for being in a bad mood this weekend. On his company's Q1 2014 earnings call, his people delivered what he thought would be good news: revenues of $15.4 billion, up 19%. Very, very few business can deliver 20% growth on billions in revenues. By any measure, Google is on fire as a company. Yet investors hated it. They sold the stock, and it declined 5% immediately after the call. ...

Even highly profitable companies like Google have had layoffs. So it's best to be prepared, particularly if your employer feels a little shaky or the work situation has gotten unpleasant. Even being a "top performer" may not protect your job. An HR executive once described ...
