DHS Seizes Websites for Merely LINKING to Copyrighted Material

Apparently the Department of Homeland Security is now authorized to rewrite and enforce copyright infringement laws. In a stunning precedent, the recent round of domain seizures to shut down websites that allowed illegal streaming of the Super Bowl also included a few other websites that were seized simply for linking to infringing content.'

  1. That's interesting.

    How about websites stealing people's personal information from mobile networks and providing so called "background checks" on people?

    Have they shut down these websites? I havee seen many and even came across one with my details being sold cheap in the USA. I'm a U.K. citizen never been to USA and most likely never will, so why is some scumbag, son of a bitch allowed to sell stolen details about me and thousands of other people in the USA, I wonder?

    What foolishness is that?

    I think DHS needs to get on that ASAP because there are loads of people doing that.

    Just because I am a customer of a mobile network that happens to be an American company, who is slack with their security, allowing some scoundrel to steal customer details? Ridiculous.


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
