Homeland Security Shutters more than 70 Torrent Sites

Diane Duke
Since last week, Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement division (ICE) has shut down more than 70 file-sharing sites. According to reports, the Department of Homeland Security is seizing sites directly from Internet regulatory body ICANN without citing the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) or the more recent Combating Online Infringements and Counterfeiting Act (COICA). Reportedly, the sites were closed without any notification to owners.

Several of the sites offer P2P sharing while some may traffic in counterfeit goods.  A list of seized sites was published by tech blog TorrentFreak.com. -jc
