Daniel Giersch Beat Out Google

Daniel Giersch Beat Out Google

FYI: German entrepreneur Daniel Giersch, the ex-husband-to-be of pregnant actress Kelly Rutherford, battled out a legal challenge with Google for nearly three years.

Giersch secured the domain gmail.de, four years after Google tried to acquire it. He claims Google offered him $250,000 for the domain at one point.

“Neither G-Mail nor I can be bought,” Giersch has said. “I have made it clear since the beginning that I will never sell the name. It is my sole intention to realize my idea for a hybrid mail system and I am absolutely convinced of its success. Neither G-Mail nor myself are for sale.”

After years of trying, Google finally decided to give up earlier this year. German users now can’t sign up for “gmail.com” accounts–they get “googlemail.com” instead.

Rutherford, who stars as Lily van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl, is three months pregnant with Giersch‘s second child and filed for divorce on Dec. 30.

it’s sucks that they have to get divorce – when lilly.. i mean, kelly are going to have JUST a baby.
i hope she’s going to get through this difficult moment.. just fine :/

I’m sorry things aren’t working out for them but…who would name their kid Hermes??? Life is hard enough with a normal name, he is going to get harrassed big time!

Hey! Where’s my Gerard Butler?

Oh great!
NOW I know why I can`t have an gmail account and have to live with the uber-long googlemail crap, instead. Well, thank you SO much, Herr Daniel Giersch.
I`m a German myself, but sometimes I`m really fed up with the german way of politics and economics. I****!

Well good for him…can’t make things too easy for google now can we…plus I got my gmail.com account a long time ago, doesn’t affect me really…

absoulutely gay …. legs and face … how doesn’t she know that ? ironically having 2 kids as well …

I agree with Ryan ..gold digger ..anyway she isn’t famous at all and don’t get lots of money from showbuz……Z list ??

@Anita

I feel for you, I am german, too.
And this googlemail.com-crap sucks BIG TIME!

But protectimg a brand name is not a german politic, every company and entrepreneur has the right to do so and they do.
Look at the Lawsuit between the Beatles and Aplle Computers.
And many many more companies.
This is daily buisness stuff.

I agree. He maybe gay…They look more like brother and sister.

What is wih naming your kid Hermes and then everything you wear is Hermes…… That is a bit odd….. I understand that if you like the brand, but that is going a bit far………

#22, Hermes is a messenger of Gods in Greek mythology…They probably had this in mind when naming their child and not the brand you are referring to…

he has better legs than her ..

I wanked a few times on having sex with him and Kelly together !!! Megan Lewis was my favourite MP Charakter. She had such a nice and juicy ass !!!

@ Mia: No, they named their child Hermes because Kelly loves the brand…
