Black Market Friday

The U.S. government stepped up its enforcement against counterfeit copyrighted products such as DVDs again, shutting down over 100 domain names where counterfeit and pirated goods were being offered. This is in addition to other seizures that took place throughout the year.

The websites are replaced with notices that the website has been taken down as part of a seizure. As the government steps up its enforcement and ability to take down domain names, will private parties be able to take advantage of such remedies as domain name seizures in the future?
