judgecorp writes "A branch of the City of London police seems to be censoring suspected pirates worldwide, using threats. The Police Intellectual Proerty Crime Unit (PIPCU), acts on tip-offs from copyright owners to attempt to close down websites accused of piracy. the process involves cease-and-desist letters, followed by pressure on advertisers not to fund the site, and finally PIPCU uses threats to the domain registrar (not the ISP), all without any sort of court order."

    Actually, the homoeopathic nutter also generates wealth through the sale of chutney and biscuits. Granted, that's through the Duchy of Cornwall, which is land essentially stolen from the public through the outdated and unfair law that says if you die in Cornwall without a will, ol' big ears gets everything....

You are in a maze of little twisting passages, all alike.
