US Government, Including ICE (?), is Seizing Domain Names Because of Filed Complaints
Thom Holwerda (OS News) is reporting that the US goverment has "started seizing the domain names of various websites through ICANN - not because owners of these sites were convicted of anything, but merely because complaints have been filed against them" at US Government Censors 70 Websites. Holwerda's post links to this blog post that reports that ICE has just seized the domain of a BitTorrent meta-search engine.
ICE, really? Some reports indicate this is a fake. Note the comments to this post. [JH]
Check out these links. Eric Holder actually held a real news conference on this and, if the post and justice articles are not "faked", he's claiming 82 such domains have already been seized.

In case you haven't heard yet, those are not ICE seizures. They are faked.
