MoreGoogle.com Loses Its Domain Name (and other domain name news)

by , Comments

Three items in this roundup.

MoreGoogle, the tool that "enhances" Google results (see SearchDay's: Visualizing Google Search Results), has lost its domain name.

The MoreGoogle blog (hosted by Blogspot), reported on November 15th that Google contacted MoreGoogle.com over, "unathorized use of Google trademark" and the "unauthorized services on moregoogle.com". Yesterday, a blog post announced that the MoreGoogle.com domain name will be shutdown and transferred to Google this week.

Thanks, S.C.

++ It looks like it was nothing more than a company buying an expired domain name but it sure gets you thinking.

Last week, Amazon.com purchased the domain name: AmazonGoogle.com.

In case you're wondering, the domain name: Googleamazon.com, displays artwork by Shawn Capizzi, a New Jersey artist.

+++ I noticed that earlier this month, Yahoo filed complaints with WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) to have several domain.names, currently not registered to Yahoo, transferred or removed

The full list of the domains that Yahoo is challenging is here.
