the Netherlands and a few other countries are actually a bit of a blissful exception to the rule, there are a lot of countries with different situations.

Luckily it will change now that the Netherlands has chip and pin.

Unfortunately this might not be for the better, but worse. As chip and pin was already broken in the UK [0] before the Dutch banks even had a look at it, I guess we'll have to see how it plays out.
