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.

Say you use some photo or graphic that has been copyrighted in your website, are you actually stealing the photo? NO, it still exists but you have used it without the authors permission.

Logic fail. Why does he need the copyright on the website? He is OK with copyright infringement. It is OK by him then that I can copy his whole website and just put it a different domain. So please Thom if you truly believe it's not stealing, take the copyright off your website.
