US Government Censors 70 Websites


www.osnews.com

The current seizures of domains did not even use the proposed bill which recently passed the US Senate Judiciary Committee. The seizures come from the US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, and cover about 70 websites relating to potential copyright infringement and counterfeit goods

It looks like the Immigration & Customs office now thinks it owns the internet. And judging by how ICANN caved in to them, it looks like they are right. Kiss goodbye to the age of internet freedom not only in the US but around the world since the blocks work world-wide. It will only get worse over time from here, and probably get worse fast

So, I took a look at the 2009jerseys.com site, which now contains an informational notice from ICE.

"Willful copyright infringement" and "knowingly trafficking in counterfeit goods"

Seems to me to be perfectly credible and reasonable grounds to shut down a business, either brick and mortar or internet.

If it were your copyright being infringed, wouldn't you want justice?

They do all look like trading sites.

Phew! I was worried they were going to be information sites. But not yet anyway.

All those websites once sold fake clothing. They're the ones you see spammed on message boards and youtube.
They didn't 'censor' them they took the websites down.

I totally agree WTF, it sounds like this was an action to protect proprietors from being ripped off by those who use the internet to sell their ripoff's of name brand products. I see Nike, Jordan, cd's, movies, and more in that list. I am sure the owners of the real products are not complaining about this.

I am glad to see that this thread has some sense (so far!)..
the other thread that covered this was all about how the big bad government was abusing their power with homeland security to put these 'business' owners out of business.
