The US has started seizing the domain names of various websites through ICANN - not because owners of these sites were convicted of anything, but merely because complaints have been filed against them.[/p]

FUCK, they've already started. Go to one of the sites and see the notice for yourself.

Watch out, GBAtemp. This seems to focus on counterfeit goods in the concrete sense of the term, but that's likely so their first use of this power has a concrete reason behind it, I doubt they'll stick to just counterfeiting sites for long.

Given a torrent search engine has been stomped upon i'd imagine pretty much everyone is fair game for this ridiculousness....

Not really. It looks like most of those sites were run by scammers selling counterfeit goods. They won't be as bad as china until they block every website that could potentially be used to say something bad about the government.

edit: and thinking about it, there are probably more than a few consumer protection laws that could have had these sites taken down easily anyway.

Still GBAtemp is a UK based site to my knowledge, but didn't the US recently pass a bill that gives them some scary power over websites outside of the country?

I don't think it applies for websites outside of America, but even if it did it wouldn't matter anyway because Labour forced a similar law through in Britain before they got kicked out.

I wonder when they're gonna start taking down "counterfeit rom sites"

Roms, videos, music, text or any kind of commercial goods converted to data can't possibly be counterfeit.
It's not until that data is printed into a duplicate (low quality) medium that it becomes counterfeit.

It does apply for outside domains, but in that case they'll just make it inaccessible from within the US (not cut it off at the source like they did for these).
