A German court has fined Google for using the Gmail.com domain in Germany despite not being allowed to use the trademark in that country.

The court ordered Google to pay $14,000 (10,000 Euros) because the use of the domain, even though Google calls it Google Mail there, means that Google is only partially complying with the law and infringing on the true owner of the Gmail name.

At least it wasn’t a lot of money.

UPDATE: Also worth noting that there’s been some evidence lately that Google is preparing a new interface for Gmail, including Google Gears integration for offline usage and data on who’s accessing your account from where.
