    Homeland Security seizes domain names
    By Sara Jerome - 11/26/10 04:25 PM ET

    The investigative arm of the Homeland Security Department appears to be shutting down websites that facilitate copyright infringement.

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has seized dozens of domain names over the past few days, according to TorrentFreak.

    ICE appears to be targeting sites that help Internet users download copyrighted music, as well as sites that sell bootleg goods, such as fake designer handbags.

    The sites are replaced with a note from the government: "This domain named has been seized by ICE, Homeland Security Investigations."

    For instance, borntrade.com, 51607.com, and amoyhy.com have each been seized.

    One of the site owners told TorrentFreak that his site was shut down without any notice or warning.

    I told you spuuorters of Homeland Security back when that this would happen.
    The reply then from the right was "If you have done nothing wrong you have nothing to fear".

    I do not have any real proplem with sutting down sites engaging in illegal activity. However this is not a Homeland Security issue.
    Ot was not before the bush admin streamlined things and combined agencies.

    LMAO at fools.

    Yepper and their names can be blocked in US net routers. A continuing battle.
    This may well be how many of these were done as it seems no on site activity was required. Just route all the illegal sites to a DHS page with a generic message.
    Which is I suspect what happened.

    So we're taking a page from China's book? :eusa_whistle:

    Can't I just route through an offshore proxy- and churn these proxies and reroutes out faster than they can chase them?

    Apparently downloading Britney Spears is a threat to national security.

    If those sites were located on US soil they deserve due process before being shut down.

    Fatherland Security is not exempt from that or is it?

    I suspect this has less to do with rightwingers per se and more to do with corporate money changing hands somewhere


    just a guess
