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.

A Few Important Questions

Where is the official list of banned websites?

Is banning the domains the only action they do or is it part of an investigation? If Torrent-finder.com adds tnerrot-rednif.org will that get blocked?

Who tips off about the names?

For how long the domains are blocked?

Will the domain names be blocked after they expire and a new owner with new content comes in?

~There are more questions that arise here!
