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.

Some sites were closed off WITHOUT even a notice or a court order. How would you like it if the police seized all your belongings, without notice, without a court order?

Apparently, you are a-okay with such actions. I suggest you move to China or North Korea, you'll feel right at home there.
