Domain Name Seizures Expected

As reported on itpropotal.com:

"Nominet, the UK's domain name registry provider, has been asked by the Serious and Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) to set up a procedure that will allow law enforcement agencies to seize and shut down domain names that facilitate illegal activities.

The company said in a statement that: “There are increasing expectations from law-enforcement agencies that Nominet and its members will respond quickly to reasonable requests to suspend domain names being used in association with criminal activity and Nominet has been working with them in response to formal request.”

The new rules come into force less than two weeks after the police took down Fitwatch, a website that advised student protesters on how to disguise themselves in order to escape from the police."
