German supermarket attempts to ban word

Linky (German)

Metro AG, a German supermarket operator, is suing the publishers of the Duden Dictionary of Foreign Words for defining "metro" as "the underground railway, especialy in Paris and Moscow". Not only that, but they have also had a pop at the public transport services of Hamburg, Munich and Berlin for using the M-word. God help us if they get their hands on Fritz Lang's copyright.
