Could be a good opportunity for some press about namecoin (or using a block chain like system for domain name resolution in general).

This precedence is setting up a legal nightmare when the semantic web arrives and a "website" gets pulled from 20 different domains and 30 IP addresses "located" all over the world.

In other news, the price of squatter names on .co just quadrupled.  Grin

I believe it does.  If the US Government can extradite some poor guy from the UK because they don't like his website (which is legal there), what's to stop them from doing the same thing to bitcoin related dotcom/nets if they decide the don't like bitcoin?

This isn't the first time something like this has happened (Slashdot.org discussion).

I doubt they can maintain that position for long. Other countries are already starting to get upset about the US's power over these domains. ICANN is under pressure to stop it.

Just shows there is no Due Process in the US any longer. On the up side it's actions like these that is waking the general populace up but I fear it will take far more before the mass revolts in whole and says enough is enough. Maybe once TSA starts deploying Viper Storm troopers on I-95 and doing strip searches at the local rest areas or they mistakenly grab the wrong Senator's junk but until then the American people will just sit there and take it.
