Legal The US is really ramping up its war on intellectual property infringement, a war which I'm sure will be just as successful, cheap and supported by the people as the wars on drugs and terrorism. The US has started seizing the domain names of various websites through ICANN - not because owners of these sites were convicted of anything, but merely because complaints have been filed against them. Anyone want to take a guess how long it will be before the US government blocks WikiLeaks? Update: The blocks function outside of the US too. In other words, the US is forcing its views upon the rest of the world once again.

The problem isn't what they're doing, but how they're doing it.

I'm against piracy. If you don't like the majors than don't buy their crap. It is called sabotage and it is the best way to show your scorn for them.

The real problem is that government agencies without any constitutional authority to arrest, seize, imprison, are doing just that. Remember that the people who founded the USA made it because the UK tirants applied laws as they liked, imprisoned people because they liked, killed "enemies" because they liked.

Democracy means that the first right of each citizen is the right to self defense. How can you defend against some entity that doesn't accept replies?

If a judge condemns you, you can appeal. Who can I ask you to have your domain removed from the blacklist?

Who will ask you to be saved by a platoon of soldiers that is going to kill you because some obscure government official ( protected under the disguise of national security agencies ) has ordered them to kill you?
