In a never-ending quest to come up with new and creative ways to make you afraid to get out of bed, the Justice Department is now confiscating ‘illegal’ domain names to use as Venus fly traps. I must admit, it’s a darling little plan.
- Evildoer runs web site.
- Evildoer gets caught, convicted, and turns over domain name to DOJ.
- DOJ points anyone clicking evildoer’s link to DOJ servers.
- DOJ reports evil-seeking clickers to FBI.
So, now just looking at a web site that might be associated with drug paraphernalia or *gasp* DMCA violators (also known as baby killers) will get your name on the FBI’s list.
