Domain Seizures / demonoid.me - registrations open

Postby dyn » Tue Dec 21, 2010 15:45 UTC

Demonoid is using new domain name, http://www.demonoid.me/, instead of old demonoid.com, because of recent illegal activity by I.C.E. (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement). Registrations are open for now, so hurry up if you want to join! Other sites like torrentz.com also moved to a different TLD (top-level domain / country), they use http://torrentz.eu/ now. EU is still relatively sane when it comes to corporate influence on government, compared to the US.

GoDaddy is known for their more or less illegal practice to "suspend" domains for one reason or another, which is why i always recommended to people to use some other registrar, but now it seems I.C.E. itself is doing same crap, seizing domain names without any warrant or legal justification. Check complete list here, it's 80+ domains already: http://www.scribd.com/doc/44344541/Domain-Names ... Most sites are perfectly legal, but apparently media bosses and other people with money are now dictating how much freedom of speech you have in the US.
