    Was OnSmash.com a torrent site, or more like Last.fm?

    And another one

    Torrent Finder was seized by the Feds today

    They were seizing websites while folks were eating Thanksgiving Turkey

  5. The Senate is working on a bill to allow the feds to do this without warrants. See Web Censorship Bill Sails Through Senate Committee about the Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA).

    Grabbed this one just now as last night someone sent me information about this. That this is all one big hoax?

    What a con game! None of these are ICE seizures. They are all fake sites put up to mimic (and not very well) the real ICE seizures. What’s the clues? All of these sites are hosted at carohosting, including the google analytics and piwik analytics that the creator wanted to track how well his viral news article was. Official seized sites are no more than a single 640×480 JPG (with no visitor tracking). Not knowing anything about the original site content of these fakes, perhaps the site owners are trying to bilk their subscribers and blame it on the Feds.
