US Authorities Seized Torrent-Finder Domain

US Authorities Seized Torrent-Finder Domain

After the domain seizure of a huge hip-hop file-sharing links website that happened earlier this week, it seems that the US authorities are still very busy, haunting other websites to close them down. Who needs that controversial COICA, if the ICE keeps seizing the domains in bulk, choosing a BitTorrent meta-search engine as its next target?

Of course, it’s not that easy, but still possible for American government and copyright outfits to simply point at any BitTorrent tracker and call it infringing. However, pointing at a website hosting torrents but not operating a tracker is much more difficult. This means that if a website doesn’t operate a tracker, doesn’t carry torrents and doesn’t list any copyright works (unless users search for them and the site has to respond just like Google), then to accuse it of copyright violation is somewhat of a minefield. However, this appeared not to apply to ICE Homeland Security Investigations.

Early in the morning, the first visitors to the Torrent-Finder website found themselves greeted with the picture indicating that the authorities have seized the website’s domain. The site’s owner exasperatedly complained that his domain had been seized without any previous complaint, and that he never received any notice from the court.

The owner told that he firstly had had DNS downtime, during which he contacted GoDaddy. Meanwhile, the DNS had changed, and even the host had no idea what was the matter. In fact, they don’t understand the issue until now, saying it was totally from ICANN. Even if the authorities had the right to seize the domains at will, they still had to face some problems with taking any action against Torrent-Finder.com. First of all, the website doesn’t host or even link to any torrents. Then, it just returns searches via embedded iframes showing other websites out of the Torrent-Finder owner’s control. New torrent-finder site now is torrent-finder.info

While the website remains working through another URL, Torrent-Finder.info, it hadn’t lost the battle. Among those hurt with the ICE actions there are RapGodFathers, OnSmash.com and DaJaz1.com – all music sites. Besides, a few other domain names also look to have been seized. The list includes handbagcom.com, 2009jerseys.com, throwbackguy.com, ifetimereplicas.com, cartoon77.com, and many more.

The only question is what is the “censorship bill” called COICA is debated for if the censorship is already put in place?

menahunie avatarThe thing I don't get nor could find in USC 18 981 and 2323 in the image was anything in those statues that allow domain seizure?
When are they going to seize Google, MSN, AOL, and out mega search engines since they also can and do lead a user to find "files".
The torrent site are no different; just a search engine.

I googled "Hurt Locker" and here is some of what showed:

PAGE AFTER PAGE OF WHERE TO DOWNLOAD THIS MOVIE FOR FREE. How come ICE has not used an alleged "warrant" to seize these as well? I am very very sure the courts also want to know...

julio99 avatarIt's all about the money. That's why the big sites and search engines don't get touched.

spiritchaser5150 avatarIt sounds like they were more after the people who and sell counterfeit products. I don't think a warrant is required when they purchase and receive the item from said source.
And I would think that when these bills are designed to protect us they are worded in such a way that we don't even know we've been screwed until it's too late.

fusseltier avatarin the Us nothing matters, they dont even follow the normal proceedure with a warrant.
it used to be they knock on your door adn tell you they have a warrant and let them in, now, they jsut bust the door down, shoot your dogs, adn tie up everyone in teh house first before explaining why they are there or even giving you a chance to say one thing.
dont believe it? search about that mayor in maryland that they did this to and shot his 2 dogs and tied up the grandmother right in front of his kids, for no reason! the dea was even told by the local police they were making a mistake and wouldnt listen.

menahunie avatarAs another poster pointed out these statues deal with "physical" counterfeit items NOT DOMAINS OR search engines??
Say you copy a 100 dollar bill and pass it off as a real 100 dollar bill; or copy a name brand shoe and pass it off as the real thing.. THAT IS COUNTERFEITING...
You know those cd's at the swap meet for 5.00? They are copies - COUNTERFEITS of the real cd...
