In talking about Homeland Security's domain name seizures, one of the lines that's been trotted out by Homeland Security and supporters of these actions, such as the MPAA, is that these seizures are "working" in terms of taking down sites and keeping them down. We've pointed out that this was not true, but the good folks over at TorrentFreak went deeper and looked at all of the sites seized for copyright infringement claims, and found that the vast majority of them came back online pretty quickly, contrary to the claims of both the MPAA and Homeland Security. So, why do they keep claiming that these seizures are working?
