Over 1250 Google pirates game for typo's

By Henk van Ess, editor www.voelspriet.nl


Abuse of the Google trademark in domain names? Google Inc. wins case after case. It looks like a waste of time and effort though. Over 1250 webmasters have Google in their domain name (and  I'm still counting).  They game for typo's and errors of reasoning by people who don't know how to find Google. The want you to buy, buy, buy.

The ICANN ended disputes about wwwgoogle.com, ggoogle.com and googlr.com in favour of Google Inc. But new infringements shoot up like mushrooms. The 1250 copycats (gov, com, org, net, mil)  and even more in the rest of the world aim especially for newbie's.  Say you live in China and you want to find a local Google version. There is a chance you would type googlechina.com. Don't even try it. This is why:

These Domains Are Available*

google-china.com

finderchina.com

locatorchina.com

They want to sell you stuff.

Google bought Gogle.com, but they forgot to stop the alternative 'search guide' http://www.googl.com

Don't put your finger too long on the 'e' when you're typing Google. One day, the owner of Googlee.com (not active yet), might want to sell you goods too. Did you type Googlel.com? Welcome to Netster, another alternative 'search engine' with links to casino's and other handy stuff  - but not. Netster seems to know that one day
Google will find them:

We are not in the business of selling domains. We have acquired these domains utilizing proprietary algorithms developed specifically for our business needs.  You may inquire below about an internet domain held by netster.com, one of our subsidiaries or clients.

It is our company policy to release any domain name that, in our opinion, another person or company has a legitimate claim to
.

Voelspriet found 373 domain names  ( 'com,' '.net' '.org' '.edu' en '.gov') that started with Google. Another 553 websites have Google somewhere else in their domain name. Another 400 websites (and counting) in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia try to fool you with google2.co.uk or google2.dk.

What now Google? Send in the lawyers? Nate Tyler of Google chooses his words with care:

,,We have expended significant resources and effort to establish the goodwill associated with the Google trademarks. As a result, those trademarks are valuable assets of the company, and we seek to protect them. We evaluate potential infringements on a case-by-case basis, but domain names that incorporate our trademark wholesale are certainly on thin ground. For a few examples of legal action we have taken, you may search the decisions available at http://www.icann.org/udrp/udrpdec.htm.''
