Gov't seized Cyber-Monday counterfeit sites - why no names?
The Department of Justice used blockbuster shopping event Cyber Monday to announce the blockbuster seizure of 150 websites that had been selling counterfeit goods.
The seizure was a joint operation that united the DoJ with several groups, including the Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations group and the FBI's Washington field office.
The 150 seized domains are in the custody of the federal government, the DoJ said. Visitors to the sites will now find a seizure banner that notifies them that the domain name has been seized by federal authorities and educates them that willful copyright infringement is a federal crime.
Of the 350 domain names seized, 116 have now been forfeited to the U.S. government. The DoJ did not disclose the names of the sites that had been seized.
-- So I wonder why the names of these sites have not been disclosed?
