    mad Homeland Security seizes domain names

    Homeland Security seizes domain names
    By Sara Jerome - 11/26/10 04:25 PM ET

    The investigative arm of the Homeland Security Department appears to be shutting down websites that facilitate copyright infringement.

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has seized dozens of domain names over the past few days, according to TorrentFreak.



    ICE appears to be targeting sites that help Internet users download copyrighted music, as well as sites that sell bootleg goods, such as fake designer handbags.

    The sites are replaced with a note from the government: "This domain named has been seized by ICE, Homeland Security Investigations."


    For instance, 2009jersey.com, 51607.com, and amoyhy.com have each been seized.

    One of the site owners told TorrentFreak that his site was shut down without any notice or warning.

    The effort come as Congress considers the Combatting Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA). Critics, including Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) say it is too heavy-handed. He has vowed to put a formal hold on the bill.

    Good for Sen Wyden. Its refreshing to know there are still a few sane democrats that see the Obama Admin as the fascist wannabes they are.


    Big Sis making sure America is safe from fake handbags and free music yet refuse to address terrorist coming across our southern borders.

    Hands up America! We will seize and search you at will. Wonder if there has been a run on brown shirts being shipped to Obama and Co?

    Please, this isn't new, and you have to spin this pretty hard to try and paint this as Obama as being fascist.

    I forgot liberals dont know the meaning of fascist seeing how many times they called Bush one then supported the same type of behavior out of Obama.

    May I ask, didnt the libs call Bush one for Gitmo and didnt Obama claim he was shutting it down yet it is still open?

    Dont take it too hard. Heres a tissue for you.

    Again, you don't know me, or my views so stop making assumptions about my views.

    It's sad that the Dept. of Homeland Security doesn't have bigger fish to fry. The poor money hungry industry is suffering a few losses due to kids downloading their mediocre products over the net.

    From what I've seen, you haven't got a clue what liberals are or what they stand for. You base your judgments on very poorly constructed stereotypes.

    I labeled myself very liberal, and yet you have no idea how I think, or what I define as very liberal.

    This is what the problem in American politics today, everyone look, it's right here. This feeling that it is us against them, that everyone who thinks different are evil bastards who all think alike, and that they must lose or otherwise the world is over. Seriously, if you wanted to actually understand, and talk with people who disagree with you then you might learn something, and grow. But instead you want to play these partisan games which help no one.

    It's interesting that you blame liberals and Obama for this, and yet the only critic that article mentions is a Democrat, and makes no mentions of Republicans.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    The bill was sponsored by a dem (Sen. Patrick Leahy) and 7 of the 18 co-sponsors were cons.

    The bill was passed, unanimously, by the Senate Judiciary Committee, of which 7 were cons (not necessarily co-sponsors).

    Guess we'd better call China and increase that order of brown shirts...
