Just doing a search for "google sucks" leads me to other websites I would think they would have acquired:

googlesearchsucks.com/
googlesux.com/

Wonder what keep them from getting all googlexyz.com domains?

I bet Google's official list of domains that they own must be huge these days. We'll never truly know how many they own though.

Google is a master of their own Game :)- online brand equity..

e.g by ensuring that googlesucks.com (etc) is not avialable, they then ensure that the index's (of all propertiies, MSN, YAHOO etc) dont get polluted at all.

In the long run is just plain brand name strategy at its finest...

This two seem to be very interesting: It's not only the google brand but also another one, so who is the legal owner of this domains regarding to brands law?

Logically speaking, they have never really needed anything other than google.com, since they can use subdomains (maps.google.com, groups.google.com, etc.) for everything, making for much more sensible addresses than the profusion of other domains the marketroids insist on.
