Recently, Jamie Zoch (@Yofie) questioned whether search engine DuckDuckGo had acquired the Duck.com domain name from Google.
Search giant Google acquired the Duck.com domain name in 2010 with the acquisition of On2, a video codec company.
Today, DuckDuckGo CEO Gabriel Weinberg confirmed to me that the Duck.com domain name had been transferred to DuckDuckGo’s possession.
Maybe they paid them for the domain, or maybe this was Google doing something nice? Who knows.
