Niue is suing a Swedish company to take control of its internet domain and around $US20 million USD in estimated lost income.
The lawsuit was filed in November in the Stockholm District Court, and claims the Swedish Internet Foundation took over Niue's .nu country code Top Level Domain without consent in 2013.
The court has not yet decided if it will take the case.
Niue's Premier, Sir Toke Talagi, wrote on Facebook last week that the lawsuit was complex but worth it because of the large sums of money involved.
Pär Brumark, a lawyer for Niue's government in Copenhagen, estimates Niue has missed out on around $US150 million over the past 18 years because it hasn't had control of its domain.
He explained to Mackenzie Smith why Niue was taking the case.
