Content Lives On
from the can't-get-rid-of-it... dept
It seems that the US government is learning a lesson that the music industry is still trying to get their heads around. Once content is online… it doesn’t go away. So, even as the government start seizing domain names, that doesn’t mean they stop the content from existing. For example, the big story this week was how the government seized the domain for ISONews.com. But, all they did was redirect the domain name – meaning the content lived on. For a while, people were still going there by going directly to the old IP address, but now someone has
setup a new domain for it with the creative name “stolemy.com”. I wonder how long until the government seizes that domain as well. How many domains do they need to seize before they should realize that content itself shouldn’t be illegal…

Would you say the same about kiddie porn?
Hijacking [the domains] without due process is a bad precedent and is not tolerated elsewhere!
