    Just caught this story on yahoo news, the Department of Homeland Security seized 70+ websites for "willful copyright infringement". When I saw the list of sites seized I assumed they would all be torrent or movies sites but it seems that a lot of stores selling counterfeit goods were snatched up as well.

    What I thought was interesting was that the one site, Torrent Finder, was seized but it basically just acts as a search engine for torrents and appears not to violate any copyright laws what so ever.

    Here's the story

    Homeland security should focus on homeland security, not copyright and movie downloads. Who fuckin cares about this seriously. Goerge Lucas isn't broke because people download's his movies.

    One day they'll be seizing sites just for political opinions.

    Some of these priorities seem a little bit off.

    Oh Well

    Governments are a real joke. Too bad 90% of the population is eating all this BS everyday!
