Mail.ru can be protected forever!
Mail.ru, one of the three most popular traffic-generator websites in Russia (the other two are Yandex and Google), has received the status of a notorious trade mark on the territory of the Russian Federation. This prestigious award provides the company with a right to perpetual legal protection.
It has been agreed that mail.ru deserves this acknowledgement as its auditorium, visiting the website both for its email and search services, exceeds 50 million users. Furthermore, mail.ru, that had previously been conducting its searches with the use of Yandex technologies, is now operating on its own (with a little help from the Russian Google, whose AdWords appear on the results page).
Note that only 85 companies own notorious trade marks in Russian Federation. Those enjoying the status include Lipton, Nescafe, Intel, Газпром (Gasprom) and others.
The good news can be found here (in Russian).
