I just read the premises.
The owner (google.dk) was running an affiliate for the English bookstore iBS with a generous helping of banner advertising.
He claimed to be in good faith, because:
- He himself had coined the word Google out of Go and ogle. Thus Google should mean "come and look".
- He thought Google had accepted his domain since they added him in their own directory: directory.google.com/Top/World/ Dansk/Netbutikker/Bøger/
Well done, Google!
