Nominet – the quasi-private entity which controls the .uk part of the internet - plans to allow the police to take down any website without recourse to the Courts. This is at the request of the Serious Organised Crime Agency.
Nominet said the idea was only a proposal and invited people to join the debate on the form of the final policy.
The group will discuss whether proposals should be put forward to change Nominet's Terms and Conditions to give a contractual basis to suspend domains where Nominet has reasonable grounds to believe they are being used to commit a crime
