U.S. Seizes Three Domain Names Used for Illegal Apps

The U.S. Department of Justice, in a first for the agency, said it shut three Websites that allegedly catered to customers seeking illegal copies of copyrighted apps for the Android-based mobile devices and seized the domain names: applanet.net, appbucket.net and snappzmarket.com. The seizures are the latest in an ongoing effort by DOJ to target piracy on the Internet.
