Due to an ongoing trademark dispute in the United Kingdom, Google has changed the name of its free Web mail service from Gmail to "Google Mail." The switch was made after the company failed to come to an agreement with financial research company Independent International Investment Research (IIIR).

IIIR offers an e-mail service called G-Mail through its Pronet subsidiary, and owns the trademark for Gmail in the UK. Google said on its Web site that it attempted to resolve the dispute through negotiations, but failed to reach a compromise with IIIR.
