    It has "google" in it's domain..

    Whois shows creation date of 2008-02-16!

    4 years, and it's still alive?

    Is Google to lenient on trademarks?

    What do you have to say?

    Yeah there's tons of them around. Take a look on Flippa and see all the numpties buying sites and domain names with trademarks, it's incredible really.

    Well, I don't think Google would need any kind of promotion. It's their negligence IMO.

    Also, about advgoogle, it is monetizing the name of "google" for profits. Shouldn't google churn this site out?

    Are internet laws really so complicated?

    I guess not. A quick search brought up a few domains that Google had taken down for using their TM.

    Code:
        youtubeislam.com
        googlemenu.com
        googledataentry.com
        googlevideo.com (registered by one "Smith Smithers" from Beverly Hills, CA)
        wwwyoutube.com
        youtubes.com
        adsence.com
        googl.com
        googlecheckout.com
        googlegameroom.com
        googlr.com
        googlesex.info
        sexogoogle.com
        googleporno.com

    Even I own a site with "google" in domain name and never had problems, my site ranks #1 in google.ro for it's main keyword, and I own this domain name since 2009 (top10googledotro).
