This has got nothing to do with the so called 'liberal media' trying to silence dissenting voices.

This is more about (if it's about anything) the corporate powers that be trying to control everything via copyright law.

They've already tried to copyright genes.

... DRM technology mounted on your Gonads... that's where this is going. And that's a lot more scary than any 'pinko fantasy' I've ever heard of.

Why would they change the website and put their own logo on it just because they have shutdown the webhost? seriously...obvious fake.
And I mean, ok the webserver is still up, that means it's pretty fake. You think USA can edit peoples private domain?..:) I would love to sue that guy

I can get a heated topic going just by mentioning this question "What do you think the reason behind Waco Texas was?" And trust me it was nothing as to what the news press said it was about.


We've never had the "right" to distribute original content with the permission of the creator of the content. So entirely independent of whatever conspiracy theory you subscribe to, the seizure of the property of a business established to break the law is not part of it.

Because that's what they do when they shut down a criminal website.

What makes you think that the Domain Name Server is pointing to the original dattebayo server?

As far as whether the FBI can issue an order to the Domain Name Server for a criminal website to redirect the URL to the FBI takedown notice page ~ of course they can. Probably have to get a court order, though ~ the proposed new law would eliminate judicial oversight.

Lulz you're telling me you actually believe that the USA, more importantly the FBI, can't sieze private domains? Are you serious or just trolling? Oh and yeah go sue the FBI, see how that works out for you rofls.

I think it's a bit sad, but on the other hand I haven't been there since CR claimed Bleach.
I still think it's the wrong move from the government.
Forcing sites to shut down, and suing everyone who downloads a song for quadrillions of internet dollars is not the way to do it.
Take Napster for ex.. Had they done something creative like making a legal option right away instead of lawsuits, filesharing today would most likely have been something quite different today.

Less restrictions on online content would be the best way to kill illegal filesharing.
Had Netflix been available where I live, without using VPN, I'd stop downloading movies at once.

I'm not entirely sure though, but given their history of these kind of pranks, it wouldn't completely surprise me.


Haven't you heard of the illegal seizures of about 70 + bittorrent related websites? It happened a little over a month ago, and websites like torrentfinder had this exact page displayed.

Here is one of that articles http://www.prisonplanet.com/us-government-seizure-of-the-internet-has-begun-dhs-takes-over-76-websites.html

It is not a joke, and it's actually HIGHLY ILLEGAL to put that up as fraud. It makes the legalities of being a fansubber looks like a joke in comparison. The sad thing is they seized these sites by bypassing the 4th and 14th amendments, thus it was an unconstitutional seizure of websites which is something I have been upset over for a while.

The US government is starting to regulate the internet in an attempt to censor information similar to china and many middle eastern dictatorships. This is not good for anybody who enjoys their civil liberties.


Illegal seizures? No, honestly I haven't. I read news articles all the time regarding technology/internet news, but haven't came across anything like that. Although, I never heard of that source you gave so, maybe that's why.

I thought the issue was the websites were promoting illegal downloading and breaking copy right content, etc? So the US government wants to put a stop to it and are taking action by closing the sites illegally? Hm, interesting. I don't think it really is the same as China though, I mean, we are comparing a country that censors everything vs preventing copyright violation. I think you're getting ahead of yourself there. ^_~
