Try a whois on FB, Yahoo, goole etc. youwill be surprised


www.pastie.org

Recently run any whois queries on Google? No? How about Facebook? MSN, or Hotmail? Yahoo? You might be surprised, comparing the results.

Nice, innit? See the "Last Updated" part also.

The brand-protecting, anti-piracy company MarkMonitor Inc. has had all these DNS names under its control for several months now.

I didn't see this topc covered here yet and it is my first post, so if my posting is already old news or doesn't fit here in any manner, plz move to the appropriate place.

I find it highly suspicious and interesting, that Markmonitor, Inc. can practically "own" one's internet ... just read the article and do the whois and tell me what's happening here ...

So the Conan joke has come true...

“YouTube, Twitter and Facebook will merge to form one super time-wasting website called YouTwitFace”

Definitely a very interesting observations which needs to be looked into. It is odd that all these competing giants would be using the same DNS host.

What interests/concerns and even scares me a little is their name. "mark" "monitor".

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead,


Given the constant erosion of privacy, and personal freedoms in general, it is no stretch to imagine that one of the many uses of the chip they plan to force upon us would be as proof of identity before being permitted access to the net.

Hi nob,
Welcome to the fray.
I read the link but did not understand what was Breaking?
Most if not all the info is quite dated. Perhaps I am missing something.
good luck ljb

As I said, didn't find this topic covered here an ATS yet and didn't find another appropriate Forum than Alternative News either. The post in the source is from yesterday, the fact itself, markmonitor playing an important role for big web-players, seems to be a bit older since they registered those domains a few months ago ...Just a try to get some attention and thoughts about this ...

this was posted a couple of days ago, here on ATS. but hey I'm no Mod :-) and probably it's a good thing that this story is brought up.

to be honest I don't know how to interpret this. I mean, I do understand about DNS services (I got some domains to run myself) but I don't know what it means that these big ones seem to use the same company, as I lack further information about the DNS service provider.

take care

My thoughts are that these are huge brands and MarkMonitor is apparently the leader in online brand protection.

From MarkMonitor's website...


Over half the Fortune 100 rely on MarkMonitor.


The guy who wrote the article seems to be reaching just a bit


This company has acquired complete access to monitor, eavesdrop, censor and fake any user of these popular Internet services in about one year (2011).


This would seem like a risky business plan for a successful domain registrar.

This is just a normal company out to make a buck just like all the others.

There is a thread on this already posted here - www.abovetopsecret.com...&flagit=837847

However, we do allow one thread per topic in BAN as well as one other forum so you're good.
Welcome to ATS by the way.

I think you're on to something very important here.
My suspicion is that this com.pany is simply a government front.
They saw how badly the public reacted to the "killswitch" idea.

I typed: Who is (My Name)?

All my links for facebook, twitter, soundcloud, reverbnation popped up with location of residency and all relatives and their location..Correct 100% except for phone number!

And I have a pseudonym under all those accounts except facebookbut they all showed up still?

Not digging this.

Good to know I'm safe by birth name. Anyone who links it with S/N trends and would be a different story. Wouldn't be hard to do, but at least I'm somewhat net-onymous for anyone who doesn't know any better.


S&F, friend.
Welcome.

I closed my facebook account a few months ago. I thought I would miss it but I surprised myself by not missing it at all. Google is next as soon as I figure out how to use my Android without it. I don't know if it will make an difference since Google makes Android.

Domain names are not owned by the person who registered it.

They are allowed to use it.

It means that:
1 - Every single request you make to any of these servers can be recorded by this "Mark Monitor" company, these requests include:
a - Every single message you send
b - Every single picture you see
c - Every single click you make on any link
d - Any kind of information you have shared by browser's default

2 - It means also, that if these "Mark Monitor" goes completelly nuts, they just pull the plug and the "internet" for most of the people(for most of the people, internet - twitter, yahoo, google and facebook and NOTHING ELSE).

3 - It means that once these domains are in the same server, an interaction between them its as easy as a snap

4 - It means that you are under a "mark", that somehow, you(and me) are being controled, even here complaining in ATS.

Get ready folks, TS will HTF very VERY soon...

I think the mark is used in reference to target. There is no such thing as the mark of the beast.

I just did a whois on myself and while all the IMDB and TVGuide stuff was right, the rest was not.

So I've done a pretty good job of using aliases while surfing and such.

And since my stage name and real name are the same I'm pretty happy about the results.
