And a thing- in USA how can they bring .uk domain? :S
Read the last line.:S
P2p = ? :s
jani. Ami post kortam aita niye bashai giye. Remember i posted a thread abt a us senate bill dat will shut down domains of torrent sites?
Yes it has been approved and they are taking da bill to UN next.
For now, .com domains are gone for use by torrent sites as .com is regulated by usa. If the UN approves da same bill, all other domains will come under da law.
ICANN is US based, they have the authority on all domains(almost) registerable.

A strong man doesn't need to read the future, he makes his own
China is often criticized for its Internet censorship practices. Although this is certainly valid with regard to political issues, the United States is rapidly becoming the most progressive countries when it comes to commercial censorship. Safeguarding commercial interests is increasingly preferred above the rights of the general public. Ironically, BitTorrent sites may have to flee to China to keep their ‘freedom’.
In response to the Homeland Security seizures of last weekend and the upcoming COICA bill, many torrent site owners have started to work on backup plans in case they are targeted in the near future.
A few dozen sites have registered alternative domains, including the semi-private tracker Demonoid who already moved away from their .com domain earlier today.
Other torrent site operators have also bought additional backup domains, TorrentFreak has learned. To emphasize the irony of the situation, Chinese domains seem to be favored, but mosts sites have more than a few. One of the torrent site owners who already had a .hk backup domain is isoHunt’s Gary Fung.
Fung, who’s based in Canada where he runs his company, has been fighting the movie industry in US courts for nearly 5 years. Currently, he is appealing a ruling which forced isoHunt to implement a filter of film related keywords for US visitors.
Although this keyword filter was ordered through the normal legal channels, the US authorities have recently stretched the boundaries of commercial censorship. The owner of Torrent-Finder lost control over his .com domain a few days ago, without being informed and without any opportunity to defend himself.
With the COICA bill, this type of censorship is expected to only increase, and isoHunt’s Gary Fung points out to TorrentFreak that this is a worrying situation.
“Countries like China censor for political reason, US with COICA will censor for copyright and commercial reason. It’ll be a chilling parallel put into serious question how the US should still be in charge of the much of the internet infrastructure like the root DNS, or how US can continue to claim as the model example for free-speaking democracy.”
Where China’s censorship is mostly fed by the Government’s concerns, in the US it’s the copyright holders who fuel the fire. Interestingly, the authorities are quite open about the fact that last weekend’s seizures were a direct response to complaints from private companies.
“In general, what we can say is, there are specific complaints from rights holders that these sites were infringing on copyrights,” Erik Barnett of Homeland Security’s ICE said in response to the seizures.
And then there’s Google of course. The search engine that pulled out of China over censorship concerns, announced just a few hours ago that it will censor auto completion on ‘piracy’ related searches worldwide. Apparently censorship is not that bad in some cases.
“We will prevent terms that are closely associated with piracy from appearing in Autocomplete. While it’s hard to know for sure when search terms are being used to find infringing content, we’ll do our best to prevent Autocomplete from displaying the terms most frequently used for that purpose,” Google writes.
This probably means that “thep” will no longer suggest “thepiratebay” and that the word “torrent” won’t be added to movie or music related searches anymore. Yes, that’s yet another successful lobby effort from the entertainment industry, and just a small step from banning ‘rogue’ sites from the search results altogether.
Earlier, the RIAA and MPAA handed in their wish lists for the COICA censorship bill, if it should pass. Judging from the comments from Homeland Security, this means that sites such as The Pirate Bay, isoHunt, RapidShare and MegaUpload may be next, as they were labeled as rogue websites by the movie and music industry representatives.
isoHunt’s Gary Fung was not impressed to see his site included on both lists though.
“For RIAA, MPAA’s slandering of us as rogue websites, it’s political PR and lobbying that has no basis in reality and ignorable. Perhaps they should be educated in the many non-infringing uses of BitTorrent and P2P, or they risk listing every social media and sharing website as rogue,” Fung told us.
The question is whether this lobbying will indeed be ineffective. Recent history offers little reassurance. It only take a single seizure warning to take a site down, infringing or not. But then again, there’s always China where torrent sites like isoHunt can flee to if needed

Google to do more piracy fighting with search
Google, once considered by some media companies as a rogue actor on the issue of copyright, is stepping up antipiracy efforts, the company said today.
On Google's public policy blog, Kent Walker, the company's general counsel wrote:
• We'll act on reliable copyright take-down requests within 24 hours. We will build tools to improve the submission process to make it easier for rights holders to submit DMCA takedown requests for Google products (starting with Blogger and Web Search). And for copyright owners who use the tools responsibly, we'll reduce our average response time to 24 hours or less. At the same time, we'll improve our "counter-notice" tools for those who believe their content was wrongly removed and enable public searching of takedown requests.
• We will prevent terms that are closely associated with piracy from appearing in Autocomplete. While it's hard to know for sure when search terms are being used to find infringing content, we'll do our best to prevent Autocomplete from displaying the terms most frequently used for that purpose.
• We will improve our AdSense antipiracy review. We have always prohibited the use of our AdSense program on Web pages that provide infringing materials. Building on our existing DMCA takedown procedures, we will be working with rights holders to identify, and, when appropriate, expel violators from the AdSense program.
• We will experiment to make authorized preview content more readily accessible in search results. Not surprisingly, we're big fans of making authorized content more accessible on the Internet. Most users want to access legitimate content and are interested in sites that make that content available to them (even if only on a preview basis). We'll be looking at ways to make this content easier to index and find.
What are we gonna do
We will not be suffering...don't worry....there is much more countries concerned about this issue....we are a small part of this immunity.
so just stay tight and don't worry.
US is making a wrong step itself.
& Demonoid je .... demonoid.me kore dibe permanent soon, eita to shobai janen asha kori...
And all you know that IPT has been moved to Russia permanently.
well as winter has pointed out, icann controls nearly all domains on da net. And icann is under usa. So 2011 may b a problematic year for torrent sites.
Everyone back to IRC maybe?
