Submission + - DHS seizes domains, tracks visitors, violates GPL? (usaoutlets.nethttp)

hildi writes: Department of Homeland Security has seized several dozen domain names. In place, they put their seizure logo, along with google analytics and piwik tracking code. First off, what right do they have to track visitors to these domains? Second, have they modified their version of piwik? If so, are they violating the GPL by not releasing their source code modifications?

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
