Go! vs Go

Francis McCabe writes:

I have been working on a programming language, also called Go, for the last 10 years. There have been papers published on this and I have a book.

I would appreciate it if google changed the name of this language; as I do not want to have to change my language!

More specifically, Francis’ language is called “Go!” (with an exclamation mark), and his book is self-published at Lulu. I get the feeling no one should be able to “reserve” a normal word for their product/ invention/ programming language and then block others from using it in the future – what are your thoughts?
