Google is right in their approach in my opinion. You should comply with the notice. You have no case in hand.Challenging google on such ground will only end up in losing time and money.

Mr. Kumar

Thanks for your information ! 


But if you search on google - "Googlexpert" Then there are more than 100 sites / blogs/ facebook links/ twitter links which have the same name ! 

So why they did not penalized with this terms ? THEY ARE STILL ALIVE ?

Google is a word where we can use in our work too. Same thing with other words. 

What you suggest ?  

I needed all recommendations ? 


Thank you 


Warm Regards

the word google used by you will create confusion in the mind of user and you and google are in same field so you will not be allowed registration.




1. I do agree that there may exist many website/blogs/facebook links/twitter links etc that use the word google in their URL/URI/a target='_blank' rel='nofollow' href or whatsoever. But the reason may be they have either obtained prior permission of google Inc. or have escaped the attention of google Inc. or have been registered in countries which is a hostile country(a heaven for hackers/crackers) or have not been of such nature that shows supseptibility to be used fraudently/or have been somehow on business terms with google. So,if you have got notice, talk to the google management and explain to them your views. If possible try to come on business terms with google Inc.


2. We do use words google but that's only for informational purposes/education purpose/references.


This is all I have offer to you in reply to this thread.

Dear Dinesh,

I can understand your concern, and I certainly agree with in so far the fact  that your operating the domain name for quite some time, and that there are others as well using similar names. While  you score here, your case is weak when one sees that the name "google" is registered by Google company for long time and has immense circulation/ usage over the web. Now one has to weigh both these options, for which evidence has to be gone into. Since a general perception exists that your name matches that of "google", your claim needs to be supported by good amount of evidence and facts.
