Submission + - Domains registered overseas, seized in US anyway (reuters.com)

mdecerbo writes: Online poker sites pokerstars.com, fulltiltpoker.com, and absolutepoker.com just had their domains seized-- no due process, just an "arrest warrant". Its name servers now point to the FBI's Cyber Initiative and Resource Fusion Unit. What's shocking is that the domains were registered overseas, in countries where online gambling is perfectly legal. If .com is a global TLD, why should US law matter more than the law where the domain was registered? I'm looking forward to the decentralized root server at dot-p2p. I'll let one of those P's stand for poker.
