Google vs Groovle: Google Lose Domain Name Battle

By Jamie Pert - Dec 31, 2009

As many of you may have already known Google were not happy that with Groovle’s choice of domain name (, this unhappiness was due to it being so similar to its own domain name.

Recently a battle has been taking place between the two companies, Google claim that Groovle’s domain name is “nearly identical or confusingly similar” to its own.

Groovle however argued that “adding an R and trading a G for a V” vastly changed the domain name, which was more similar to “groove” or “groovy”.

This dispute has resulted in 207 Media being allowed to continue using the domain name, personally I agree with the decision, do you?
