Are .com domain names able to be taken down by US for 'any old reason'?
Are they able to do this for any other domain extensions other than .com?
Presumably .eu is 'safe' - TPB uses a .eu extension and I'm sure they've unsuccessfully been targeted by the US for takedown... is this right?
Assuming .com can be taken down and .eu cannot, and you use the .com only to forward to the .eu, will the .com be taken down if they USA doesn't 'like' the .eu site being forwarded to? eg if tpb.com was just forwarding to tpb.eu would the USA still want to / be able to take down the .com site?
Anyone know where I can find more detailed info on this?
I have no idea how the law works with the USA (or any other country for that matter) regarding taking down websites, but it seems like they can just do it however they want. I'd really like some more info (links) on this sort of thing. My google skills failed me on it.
.com, .net, and .org are the common seizures. Where the sites are located is irrelevent. There are a number of different laws they use, from IP laws to racketeering laws.
