By the way, that website helps people to transfer emails between different email account, ie, from Hotmail to Gmail.
like Brett says this has been around for years ..and what is Googles proof that they own the font ...?
unless they are trying for ownership of the letter G worldwide =o
plus on a closer look ..it's actually 2 fonts ..the lower case "r" ( used by gtransfer in 2 instances ) is not part of the same font as the rest...
The rest looks like maybe "bookman" or somesuch the "r"'s look tweaked to be thicker at the top of the letter ( wish I could remember what that bit's called ...years since I lectured in typo ..where's limbo when you need 'im )...
BTW.. Brett..it goes back even further ..In the UK back when I was a kid there was a candy name of "fruit polo's" ..used "The same Font" as "google" do now ...same rainbow effect ..Was trademarked too ( the name written in that way I mean ..don't know if they trademarked the effect as related to all serifed typefaces tho ...wouldn't have though it would have been accepted even had they tried! )..
