Gmail faces trademark issues

If Google knew there are 3 other "Gmail's", why did it open another one?

Google's path to world domination took a turn for the worse yesterday with news that a small British company has already got the trademark for Gmail and has been using it in 80 countries.

But don't they automatically own the letter "G" and all it's connotations and configurations simply because they are G**gle after all ... just like M$ owns Seattle, the USA, the World, the Solar System, the Milky Way, the Universe, ad nauseum just because ... well ... because!

Me thinks all those PHDs makes for too many chiefs with bright ideas and not enough (must be pc here) lower-order-of-magnitude-life-forms to proof the hypothesis before building another widget that won't.
