U.S. Seizes 131 Domain Names Used for Piracy

The U.S. government has seized 131 domains allegedly associated with counterfeiting- and piracy-related websites, reports TorrentFreak. The action signals that U.S. authorities have resumed “Operation In Our Sites”, a joint initiative between the Department of Justice and Immigration and Customs Enforcement that aims to stop online piracy and counterfeit item sales by assuming control of a site’s domain name.
