Google has released the latest version of its trademarked ‘Domain Purchase’ service.
Domain purchase enables a domain to be purchased for the first time, for example, if you have a site with a ‘Google’ logo.
If a domain owner does not have a domain yet, they can pay a monthly fee for the right to purchase the domain.
But Google has also announced that it is looking to change the definition of the word ‘public’.
According to Google, the new definition will only apply to public domain content that is available in search results and not on the web.
That is, if a domain is available on the internet and is part of a search result, the term will not apply.
Google says that this is a “small but significant change to how the word has been defined in the US since the late 1990s”.
Google says it is working with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to define this term.
The search giant has not yet provided any evidence to back up its claims.
