Seriously? 12 flags and no comments?

I guess you guys didn't want to know this......


Nope..so the FBI redirected/seized the domain. Everyone knows that, really.

*ANY* centralized solution is IDIOTIC.

Use bittorrent...or invent a new protocol using de-centralized file sharing.

Hosting files on "some" central server "in russia"..just sounds idiotic.

P2P (peer to peer) is the way to go, and new, maybe better P2P protocols.

I find the loose connection to GoDaddy interesting and the recent backing of godaddy for sopa. Wonder if all the government domains are purchased through godaddy ..... just saying.

godaddy is a corporation. Hmm. They side with who? They also have a major stake in the infrastructure. If they don't comply? Geez, they are out of business, plain and simple.

Kinda a no-brainer there.

I don't get where you're going with this post unless I not understanding it.

The FBI seized the website domain like cops seize drug cars, it is standard operating procedure of law enforcement.

May I suggest ATS changes TLD (top level domain I.E .com) to something outside the US or any country that might just block them like they did with the other ones ?

Yep completely agree with you. Having some sort of P2P web server would be kinda nice although it would be hard to implement given that a web server relies on the DNS to point to the IP address.

Maybe we should just start to memorize the IP address instead of the domain name like we use to do with the phone number back in the ol' days. That way, you could have 10 servers hosting the same stuff and they would never have to worry about having their domain name seized.

Please watch the video I posted just a few posts above this....

P2P isn't safe either if ACTA is passed- legally speaking.

They (media corps) ALREADY HAVE OUR INFO- seeing as THEY ARE THE ONES WHO CREATED THESE PROGRAMS TO BEGIN WITH.

They just haven't been able to use that info legally- until now...

TODAY is the day that ACTA is supposed to be formally signed by all the EU members...

From RT's (Russia Today) Article about the dangers of ACTA:
rt.com...


ACTA's reach is far more global, with countries like the US, Switzerland, Japan and all European Union members in its grasp. It is allegedly being introduced "to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries' law enforcement agencies." But in reality, the measures that have been worked on by behind-the-scenes politicians and media industry moguls are just shy of draconian.

Under this new treaty, Internet Service Providers will police all data passing through them, making them legally responsible for what their users do online. And should you do something considered "breach of copyright" like, for instance, getting a tattoo of a brand logo, taking a photo and posting it somewhere, you may be disconnected from the Internet, fined or even jailed.

This, of course, threatens the entire founding idea of the Internet – the free sharing of information. But ACTA doesn't stop there. It goes beyond the Internet, bearing down on generic drugs and food patents. If passed, ACTA will enforce a global standard for seed patenting, which would wipe out independent, local farmers and make the world completely dependent on the patent owners (read "big corporations") for supplies.

The agreement states that it must be signed and ratified by 2013, but the seemingly late deadline is no cause for celebration. And if the secrecy surrounding this latest censor tool continues to hold, it may be put into effect without anyone noticing

Thanks for sharing such relevant information. Good to see another member whose watching what's taking place with the interwebs. Don't have time to watch the video this morning, but I'll definitely check it out after work today.

So...uh... When did it get updated, then? Before, or after?

I think that's a good point to hinge upon, since if it was before, then Megaupload could have been essentially an information gathering tool for the FBI, whereas after could just mean that they are keeping the Domain Name active so that it cannot be reused... or further investigating the full list of charges to be brought against them... or...?

I don't think we can automatically point at nefarious purposes here. If it's an ongoing investigation, I'd want to make sure the site was completely under control and no evidence could be tampered with.

Am I off-base?

I fail to understand what is so surprising about a SEIZURE being performed by the FBI. Who were you expecting Walmart???

Nevermind.

You're not the least bit concerned that cirfu siezed a tld that has been active since 2005, that had many legitmate uses, and was used by approximately 25% of the internet worldwide?

How long have you had a computer?

The process itself is frightening. Seize first, question later. Bye bye freedom.

Druid, maybe we want to know, but don't want to post and be scrutinized by our local fusion office ( a branch of Homeland Security), since you are doing investigative work on them.
