The U.S. government’s crackdown on file sharing and counterfeiting has
taken a new and disturbing turn.

Yesterday, we reported that the Department of Homeland Security’s
Immigration and Customs Enforcement office had seized,
a site that linked to other sites that hosted and shared torrent files of
copyrighted material. The news itself was not too unusual; what struck us
as out of order was that the site had been shut down without the owner
being notified and without a court conviction or, to our knowledge, any
other legal proceedings.


Phi Beta Iota: In addition, we wonder what this has to do with Homeland Security.  The incoherence and lack of holistic integrity of US plans, programs, policies, and spending continue to astound.
