Google drops Gmail in the UK

Google Gmail e-mail service will change its name for new UK users following a trademark dispute. The mail account will be renamed Google Mail.

London-based Independent International Investment Research says it started using the Gmail name for a web-mail application two years before Google.

Talks between Google and Independent International Investment Research broke down after they failed to agree on a financial settlement.

The BBC broke the news that the new name for the UK Gmail service will be GoogleMail. Which will, we imagine, still be referred to as GMail. But for legal purposes It will be known as GoogleMail.
