65 seized websites now feature PSA

WASHINGTON – To coincide with World Intellectual Property (IP) Day, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) has launched a new public service announcement (PSA) that aims to raise awareness of the economic impact of IP theft.

In June 2010, the HSI-led National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center (IPR Center) began "Operation In Our Sites," a sustained initiative targeting websites...

Targeting websites, like potentially ATS, and any other where downloading videos, music, and or pictures might happen.

Antipiracy PSA


Or even uploading downloaded videos.


Quote from : U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement : New Public Service Announcement

Through the administrative forfeiture process, individuals who have an interest in the seized domain names are provided a period of time after the "Notice of Seizure" to file a petition with a federal court and additional time after the "Notice of Forfeiture" to contest the forfeiture.

If no petitions or claims are filed, the domain names become property of the U.S. government.

Since "Operation In Our Sites" began, 65 domain names have been forfeited using this process.

Other domain names are still in the administrative forfeiture process.


Looks like they are taking this serious.

Is this linked as well to the group called "Anonymous"?

It sure could be.



This might be more about stopping the conspiracy theory community.

I cannot concur with illegal downloads, however, this is piggy-backing other things.

This is putting Customs and Immigration Enforcement into the online communities.

Making cyberspace an "immigration" issue.

Sure sounds as if they're tying together everything towards the cashless society.

For the last time it is time to get serious.

$&F. Thanks for bringing awareness to this issue. The government will always try to silence the voice of freedom for it is the only thing that hasn't been controlled completely. All the government seems to do is always take and take some more and very rarely give back to the community.

Yet they sell it as protecting people's rights.

I'm all for protecting people's rights.

But the rights of all citizens need to be protected equally.

Not the rich first, the average second, and the poor never.

Free movies, but if you take them, she loses her job


Hog wash. Next thing they'll tell us that playing with yourself gives you hairy palms and consuming certain plants turns boys into girls.


I hate these PSAs... they overly simplify a subject into a 30 second slot and ultimately it sounds just like a lie.

They do oversimplify these public service announcement, yes, but for a reason.

The targeted audience is those people too stupid to understand politics.

Those are the type of people willing to snitch you our for your Facebook comments.

Which is about 95% of the American populace who pays more attention to American Idol.

"Oh look, Adam Lambert is so hot, too bad he's gay, I'd let him do me."

Waste of time watching television anymore unless you can gain intelligence.

In the many definitions of that word.

Whether you get it off the street or off the internet, digital piracy and product counterfeiting are not victimless crimes. The financial repercussions are very real and cost real jobs.


what nonsense why aren't the blaming the finical crisis? oh thats right they wont so they blame the innocent citizens who cant afford to buy the least hollywood garbage and todays music? its also garbage, so why should we the people waste our money?


If we can view and listen to it for free? the same goes for anime, cartoons.

The Intellectual Property Theft Awareness is a such joke
