Homeland Security seizes domain names

U.S. Govt. Seizes Web Domains Accused of Piracy, Counterfeiting

We said it would happen and it is starting.  Where is the due process for the owners of these web sites?  According to one of the articles, some warrants were signed authorizing these sites to be shut down.

What if it turns out they are wrong and they have just taken away someone’s livelihood? An even more important question is why they even care about people “copying music” or selling “imitation” handbags?  Aren’t they supposed to be concerned about terrorism and securing our borders?
