Google

Updated November 30, 2011 at 5:39am EST:  Google has now apparently acquired the domain name GoogleSpot.com through MarkMonitor.  According to WHOIS records, the name switched hands on November 28.  While MarkMonitor is listed as the registrant, Google regularly uses the brand protection service to secure domains.

The search engine giant has filed a trademark application for ‘Spot’ according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. 

The filing (Serial Number: 85403946) took place on August 22, 2011 and covers computer programs and downloadable computer programs that implement an object-oriented computer programming language.

The registrations include domains such as spotlang.com, spotlanguage.net, spot-lang.com, and spot-lang.net.
