Dutch State Loses Case Over Generic Domain
In a remarkable appeal judgment, the Dutch state has twice lost
separate cases on the usage of one and the same generic domain name. 
The name concerned is for a site on the largest infrastructure
project ever undertaken in Holland, the new very controversial
so-called 'Betuwelijn' freight rail link from Rotterdam to Germany,
that cuts right through the width of the small country.
The accompanying promotional site is called 'Betuweroute.nl' and
claims to give all relevant information, but relevant here seemed to
mean positive.
