The US federal government went on the offensive today and took control of 307 sport domains. Is it just a coincidence that the Super Bowl is happening in 4 days? OF COURSE NOT! This is the problem that hundreds of thousands of internet users have been speaking out against. Big content companies control the government. They speak out against certain domains and the feds jump right on them without any thought or due process. One surprising detail about today’s seizures was that .TV domains were seized. Many people including myself thought that these were untouchable domains for the US government since .TV belongs to islands of Tuvalu. However they are run and operated by a US based company called Verisign. So they do in fact fall under the control of the US government.
