Vagueness About ‘Pirate’ Domain Seizures Disturbs US Politicians

You know, it is ironic that politicians say the "vagueness" about domain seizures disturbs them. The vagueness? The vagueness? These guys created the vagueness.

I guess statements like this wouldn't be so bad if the average politician didn't need a fact finding committee to tell them where their asses are in the first place. frown

Domain seizures of alleged pirate sites continue to be criticized in the United States. Two of the most outspoken politicians on the issue have asked the responsible authorities about the legitimacy of the seizures, but received insufficient answers. In a response both politicians characterize the seizures as censorship and claim that the authorities "demonstrate little if any understanding of the Internet’s value and function."
