ExtraTorrent Threatens Legal Action Over Police-Ordered Domain Seizure
This week the Internet found itself part of a new reality in which website domains can be suspended by registrars based on the accusations of a third party and with no due process. One of the sites affected was ExtraTorrent, one of the world’s largest torrent indexes. Its operators now inform TorrentFreak that following the suspension of their .com domain they will take legal action if necessary in order to have it returned.
