»Surfboard from 1999 to 2001 owner Google.nl
In the first few years the domain Google.nl was owned by Surfboard Holding BV instead of Google. Cindy McCaffrey, head of Corporate Communication at Google, did not want to confirm whether the company would take legal action, "but we know about it and it has our attention". Initially, the domain Google.nl referred to the search engine Ixquick.« Source
