In section "2.4. URI Overloading" it says:

"Suppose, for example, that one organization makes use of a URI to 
refer to the movie "The Sting", and another organization uses the same 
URI to refer to a discussion forum about "The Sting."

Its not clear *how* these two different organisations can 
use/allocate/assign the *same* URI
to different resources at the same time?

I think it may be more clearer to talk about re-assiging the same URI 
to different resources.
That is, the same organisation assigns a URI to the movie "The Sting" 
and if they don't want to
do this anymore, should not then reuse that same URI for other
