+ - UK government attempts grab of UK domain names

Submitted by Wowsers
Wowsers writes: In an exclusive article from The Register, it is stated that the UK government is attempting to grab the private company that controls the UK domain names. Most worrying is that if the takeover occurred, it could lead to the government cutting people off who run websites that do not adhere to that party's line, snuffing out freedom of speech.

[The] Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) has asked Nominet, which is in charge of the .co.uk registry, to justify its independence from Whitehall.
