The Department of Homeland Security shut down about 75 sites. Some are are sites that offer inexpensive alternatives to expensive designer items. Others sites that are search engines that help users find torrent links on the web.
Aside from the fact that domains are being seized seemingly at will, there is a very serious problem with the action against Torrent-Finder. Not only does the site not host or even link to any torrents whatsoever, it actually only returns searches through embedded iframes which display other sites that are not under the control of the Torrent-Finder owner.
Torrent-Finder remains operational through another URL, Torrent-Finder.info, so feel free to check it out for yourself. The layouts of the sites it searches are clearly visible in the results shown.
While it may not be be obvious to most us what this has to doi with the security of the nation, it may have a lot to do with the fatcats who donated to the the Democrats, and to President Obama’s Campaign.
HOMELAND SECURITY is seizing Internet domains left and right. It’s not clear what protecting fatcat entertainment folks’ copyrights has to do with homeland security, though.
UPDATE: Protecting Rappers instead of the border. “What the devil are these idiots doing? . . . This is a case for the music industry’s lawyers — not the $35 billion-a-year Department of Homeland Security.” Well, to be fair, the entertainment industries make a lot of political contributions to Democrats.
It should be noted that torrent sites do not offer copyrighted materials, just the links or the small files called torrents which provide the identification and data to enable a user with the correct peer to peer software to exchange data. There is a lot of proper and perfectly legal files also exchanged in this manor. In fact this is the preferred method to get updates on much of FOSS software such as Ubuntu O/S ,
Homeland Security seems oblivious to the part they are playing in bringing the current administration down. The unpopularity of the the strip and grope of the TSA, Real terrorist seem to be getting more active, and our almost non existing border security, They are really proving to have their heads inserted up their buttocks.
