ICE Seizes More Domains Today, Admin Says "We'll Be Back" posted 05/22/2011, 7:05 PM (TorrentFreak)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
Yesterday and without warning, US authorities resumed “Operation In Our Sites” seizing several domain names associated with copyright infringement and counterfeiting. Today, yet more domains were added to the growing list. TorrentFreak caught up with one site owner who told us that while they were taken by surprise by a “pointless” seizure, they’ll soon be back.

As indicated in our exclusive report yesterday, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have resumed “Operation In Our Sites”, the domain name seizing initiative designed to crack down on copyright infringement.

Following on from the most recent set of seizures in February, yesterday’s action represents the fourth phase of the operation. The following six domains were taken:

* Re1ease.net
* Watchnewfilms.com
* Dvdcollectionsale.com
* Dvdscollection.com
* Dvdsetsonline.com
* Newstylerolex.com

Today the list has grown again to include the following:

* mygolfaccessory.com
* overbestmall.com

TorrentFreak managed to catch up with PiraCee, an admin at Re1ease.net, a portal that did not host any copyrighted material itself but linked to movie and TV shows on sites like Megavideo.com.

“We were not informed [that the seizure was imminent] in any way,” he told us. “I was just presented with the ICE image upon doing a page refresh.”

Intellectual Property: Some Countries Are More Equal Than Others posted 05/22/2011, 7:05 PM (Kevin Carson)
[Category: Commentary]
For years, global digital copyright treaties and IP provisions of assorted “free trade” agreements have been drafted in secret by proprietary content industries.  Even the digital copyright laws of ostensibly independent countries have been drafted by lobbyists from those same industries, and rubber stamped by the national parliaments with most of their members never even having a chance to read them.

For example, a large batch of diplomatic cables released by Wilileaks in April i

Peter Schiff: Beware the NIA Penny Stock Pump & Dump posted 05/22/2011, 7:03 PM (YouTube)

Schiff Report Video Blog May 20th 2011
NIA touts penny stock Mega Precious Metals based solely on its "inferred" 1.2 million ounces of gold. However, NIA knows that "inferred" resources are practically meaningless. More important, they also know that their members, not being sophisticated gold investors, have no clue what "inferred" means and they exploit that i

I think this is my favorite part from their (non)response.
"There is a reason why NIA's membership base is growing by leaps and bounds and far exceeds this stock broker. NIA's President spends 12 hours per day studying the economy and researching stocks. His number one goal in life is not making money for himself, but is preparing Americans for hyperinflation and helping as many Americans as possible survive and prosper during the currency crisis that is ahead."
Oh, how wonderfully selfless of you!

Reminds me of this quote from "Francisco's Money Speech" in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged:
"It’s the person who would sell his soul for a nickel, who is loudest in proclaiming his hatred of money–and he has good reason to hate it. The lovers of money are willing to work for it. They know they are able to deserve it.

“Let me give you a tip on a clue to men’s characters: the man who damns money has obtained it dishonorably; the man who respects it has earned it.

“Run for your life from any man who tells you that money is evil. That sentence is the leper’s bell of an approaching looter."

[Category: Economy]
The economist who helps predict how much money state government can expect to fund its budget has declared personal bankruptcy, telling the Sun he didn't foresee his own financial meltdown.

John M. Restrepo, chairman of the five-member State Economic Forum, filed for bankruptcy protection in November, citing $905,000 in debt and $360,000 in assets.

Gold, silver coins to be legal currency in Utah posted 05/22/2011, 7:02 PM (Associated Press)
[Category: Economy]
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah legislators want to see the dollar regain its former glory, back to the days when one could literally bank on it being "as good as gold."

To make that point, they've turned it around, and made gold as good as cash. Utah became the first state in the country this month to legalize gold and silver coins as currency. The law also will exempt the sale of the coins from state capital gains taxes.
This is a good first start, but the main problem with using gold as currency is the atrocious federal capital gains tax of 28%. - Chris, InfoLib
