nerit-ert-300x148In it's hurry to appear cool, calm and collected and demonstrate that the recent closure of the Greek State Broadcaster ERT was well thought out, the Government announced the name of the new re-vamped state broadcaster NERIT, which stands for New Hellenic Radio Internet and Television complete with logo.

It did however forget the to register the internet domain name prior to this announcement. This resulted in some comedian from the blog Troktiko registering it first and setting up a website broadcasting the current NET news service with the assistance of the Europen Broadcasting Union.

There is also a jibe at the Prime Minister Antonis Samaras suggesting he should try should try “pitsaria-pou-eskise.gr,” a reference to comments by Samaras last year that he ran a pizza shop when he lived in the U.S. while he was in his 20s. The website can be found here

In the past I have known of some Domain Squatters as they are called making several hundreds of thousands from businesses by actions such as these. But in times of austerity I am not sure this one may be so lucky.
