    Someone needs to create a browser or a plugin that allows u to save the ip address of websites,so that if the .com,.net .org etc. was "seized" the site would still be up.

    On basically any shared hosting this wouldn't work for technical reasons. Only real chance would be a distributed DNS and hosting on distributed resources to prevent a single point of "failure". Skype wasn't *THAT* much different from this (with due differences) scenario and truly a solid concept (super nodes and whatnot) but eventually some big money corporation, eGay first, then MS now, made sure any data exchange could safely be monitored ;) And I'm sure nobody gave any friendly advice in DC during the usual lobbying... Of course... ;) So I wouldn't fret if I were you.

    It's hilarious how etsy has had thousands of pieces of fake chanel jewelry right out in the open since the site started and the feds have yet to figure it out.

    <= I`m really sorry but I don't wanna change the style for the text :) so will leave it like default ... Thing is '' feds'' don't give a shiet about your crappy site ever :) none bother about it ... well ... in this particular case feds care about '' selling counterfeit merchandise '' :) ... so they didn't take some freakish blogs , or some innocent sites down ... what the fk do you expect you can keep up and running any illegal shitty up ?

    The issue continues to be about lawful DUE PROCESS and PROBABLE CAUSE, not the particular "illegality" presumptively alleged against the parties. When it's proven in court that the sites are "running any illegal" stuff (rather than simply selling unbranded material that has about the same quality as more pricey brands, thus meeting the strong demand in a free market) then it's true, and appropriate for the jackboots to seize the accused's site, property, and good name. Not before. The crackdown is the real crime, as it is stealing our free republic.

    It also depends on the international laws and where the companies selling the "counterfeit" items are from. For music its possible to start a service like iTunes,and have it based in russia where you do not need permission of the rights owner to sell the music,just need to be a member of the russian royalty agency and pay the 15% commision.

    And its legal to import items that you have purchased overseas if those items were legal in the country you first bought it. So technily the
