Submission + - Torrent Site Seized by US Government->

Das Auge writes: Without waiting for the COICA legislation to pass, the US government has seized, apparently without prior warning, the torrent site onsmash.com. This action was a part of group of seizures whose focus appears to be mostly on counterfeit goods. ICE has confirmed the reports, “ICE office of Homeland Security Investigations executed court-ordered seizure warrants against a number of domain names. As this is an ongoing investigation, there are no additional details available at this time.”

I surmise that this is an attempt to lump copyright infringement with the actual theft of counterfeit products.
