BMW owns Alphabet.com and it’s not selling it to Google
[ O is for oops ]
Perhaps Google (Alphabet?) should have googled its new name before it decided to restructure the whole company.
The New York Times reports that Google’s new parent company, Alphabet, has encountered an issue with german automaker BMW, which owns a fleet services company with the same name and the domain Alphabet.com.
A spokesperson for BMW told the Times the company isn’t planning on selling its domain and that Alphabet was a large part of its business.
