hugheseyau writes "Between November 2010 and May 2011, the US Department of Justice (DoJ), under many banners including the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), seized over 140 domain names from sites allegedly engaged in the "illegal sale and distribution of counterfeit goods and copyrighted works" or other illegal activities.
