In April of this year Germany's GoogleWatchBlog reported that the gmail.de domain had finally been transferred to Google and would be official as of May 18, 2012. Google later contacted the Germany blog to confirm that "legal disputes over the use of the trademark Gmail and the respective domains" were closed in Germany.
