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.

Talk about over-reacting. I'm sorry everything cant be an unregulated, uncontrolled free-for-all that half of these posters wish it to be.

Wait, what?Are you saying that I cant sell counterfeit goods on the internet without risk of being shut down? This is an outrage!

This isn't China, I highly doubt it'll ever get like China, so stop being so damn over the top.

True, you'e turning into your old arch-nemesis USSR more than China.
