A group is trying to get their hands on the maori.co.nz domain name:

Do you think they will be sucessful? The only way they can get the domain name is if the word maori breaches a trademark they have in New Zealand, and i'm pretty sure the word 'maori' cannot be trademarked in NZ because it's an ethnicity, just like names of countries cannot be trademarked.
