    Its begun, and for many, the game will change...

    I-C-E has started cracking down on sites selling replica goods and trademark infringements (ouch)!

    I believe they started today. 12/15/11

    Check some out their first targets. There are a few 100's more... seems like their targeting "replica" sites first.

    Code:
    tvshack.net 
    icqshoes.com
    2009jerseys.com
    ebayshoppingjoy.com
    dvdcollectionsale.com
    
    They redirect your site to their "your ass is mine site" and direct you to their "you shouldn't be stealing" video on the tube.

    Code:
    http://www.youtube.com/v/cx8obpx4844?autoplay=1
    
    Looks like its time to move to real informational sites...

    How in the hell is shutting down criminal activity stealing your sites? You would probably have a different tune if you had been sold a valuable fake or you had a popular brand and people were using your name in their advertising and hurting your image. Before you criticize you need to THINK about what is actually going on. How about you make a bot that makes millions and have someone cracks it and gives it away? There is no sense in this kind of thinking. No it has not happened to me but when I get there, I want the protections and you can bet your ass that I will be coming after you legally or by sending 2 guys from Jersey.

    Believe me I am NOT pro government but I will use what is in place to protect what is mine and that is exactly what has been done here. They do not go after the sites just to get them off the web, there has to be a complaint filed first. They do not troll for these sites.

    What a stupid ass commercial. Whoever produced it is a fucking faggot.

    Bullshit Metallica syndrome.. "Oh, if you download this movie illegally, poor Adam Sandler won't be able to get his solid gold bath tub. You want him to bathe in a porcelain piece of shit like you all? Gross, man. Just give him $10."
    http://www.kontraband.com/videos/4325/Downloading-Music/

    "This is Britney Spears' private jet. Notice anything? Britney used to have a Gulf Stream 4. Now she had to sell it and get a Gulf Stream 3 because people like you decided to download her music for free... Gulf Stream 3 doesn't even have a remote control for its surround sound DVD system. Still think downloading music for free is no big deal?"

    Fuck you, Sandler. The way I see it, you owe ME money, bitch. Remember 50 first dates? Deeds? Chuck & Larry? Click? (I'm only 1/4 the way down your IMDB page, motherfucker. And I still don't even see Happy Gilmore.) I seen all those stupid ass movies and you haven't made me laugh since I was 12.

    Here's how it works, Hollywood. You want ME to pay YOU for your shitty work? Stop making shitty work then, fucktard. I'm not going to pay to see some dumbass movie like Invincibles, where you try to spin off 300 and make another $1B. You're not going to trick me and 9/10 times the only reason I'm watching your shitty movie is because I have nothing better to do. Now, if you didn't do shitty work, I wouldn't be doing it. I don't want to watch a movie that I WANT to see on the computer. It ruins it, then I can't sit through it in the theater.

    But Chuck & Larry.. Fuck yeah, I'll pirate that thing until it bleeds out of its ass.

    But you know what else, Hollywood? Fuck you anyways. You know why? Because there's NOBODY protecting MY work, motherfucker. What's so special about your stupid movies and TV shows? Check it out.. Sit coms are fucking gay. I haven't watched one since Seinfeld, so stop trying, you people aren't funny anymore. Most of your movies are weak ass attempts to get $10 from me. Here's what I think of Hollywood...

    "Hey man, you got $10? I'll sell you this half-eaten Snickers." -- Fuck you.
    "Hey man, you got $10? Remember that Snickers? I ate it. Here's what I shit out." -- Fuck you.
    "Hey man..." -- Get a job.

    Then if I don't buy your shit, you want to call me a criminal? Fuck you. Protect your work then, bitch. Don't make a stupid ass law thinking YOU OF ALL PEOPLE get to run the internet now because "ohie, I'm so creative I am, but I CAN'T COME UP WITH A PROPER LICENSING PLATFORM FOR MY SHITTY PRODUCT."

    You know what happens if I make something and somebody steals the code? Tough shit. I should have made a better licensing program for it, huh? You see me running back and forth to websites calling HOMELAND SECURITY???? To repo those sites because I'm fucking retarded and never heard of protecting my digital goods?

    Fuck you, Hollywood. If you try to censor the internet, it'll be the biggest mistake you ever make. Trust me. Besides... My personal server is in fucking France. I can get one in China or Pakistan if I fucking want. You going to stop me?

    Fuck you.

    Hahahaha. You're going to come after crackers legally?

    Good fucking luck, dude. Cracker's name is Brashpeh and he lives in a tiki tent out in Afghaniscam. His IP comes out of Denver, though and the only name you'll find is John Smith. Make sure to send your big tough, mean old nasty gangster ass mafia retards with some fur coats because it's probably cold as shit in Denver.

    .....God. What else do you want the gov't to do for you? You want them to wipe your nutsack after water splashes on it when you take a shit? How about, like I said, you just don't introduce a piece of crap licensing system? Because guess what you're REALLY going to be doing when somebody cracks your million dollar bot?

    Here.... "waahhhhhh somebody cracked my million dollar bot."

    That's it. Can't sue what you can't find. (And you can't sue what you find in another country.)

    They're not stealing the website they're just controlling the domain.
    Who needs domains anyway?
    We'll do what we did before www. Go back to numerical addresses.
    There's more to the Internet then just the web.
    They are just driving the internet further underground.
    I see the rebirth of ARPANET but with modern technology then what will they do?

    First off, lets be clear, these are not MY sites. I do not participate in the "replica" product trade.

    Now, the part that is a concern for many (i suspect) is that this isn't the FCC seizing sites, this is the DHS (homeland security) now shutting down website. This is insane!

    The DHS - the magical agency with the task of protecting the USA from Terror is now shutting down websites for counterfeit goods! Sounds ludicrous right?

    Well, their new power granted by the NDAA act (to big for me to explain, search for it) gives them the power to not only grab copyright infringement sites, but also trademark infringement sites as well.

    That means any domains you have with a brand name or company name in them, are easily seizable now (as of today) by the DHS. No hearing, no cease and desist, no arbitration, they just steal it! The USA federal govt now has the power to steal your sites - even if you chillin in the bahamas or the Swiss Alps... the USA govt now has the power to steal sites your based on the NDAA act to shield the USA from Terror. Its bullshit!

    I'm not saying the DHS is going to shut down every site with a trademark infringement, all I'm saying is they now have the power.

    I was a pirate before, but left that because i felt bad. But if the shit goes like this USA would soon realize the mistake. There are a million ways to get the job done. You just need to find the way and they will be forcing us to find a way.

    I for one agree with ox. You cant censor the last freedom we have.

    This reminds me of when they shut down large Gambling sites so they could legalize it in DC for themselves within a week of each other.

    They can only shut down domains that are property of a u.s. company. The u.s. government does not have the authority to shut down overseas owned websites. When you buy a .com you don't really own it,unless you have trademark rights to it. Verisign is renting it out to you.
