therefor according to the letter of the law, vb.ly should not have been taken down
And that's where he/she made their mistake.
Flirting with the spirit of the law even in a free and open country like Canada is a big no no.
I'm not surprised a country like libya took this action.
'Rolf' left a comment on Ben's blog page that sums it up quite nicely:
How’s that any different from a Western government taking down a site or a domain because they think it promotes copyright infringement or child #*$!ography or something similar? If you host a site in a particular country you have to play by their rules, and there’s nothing to say they have to be the same as the rules in your own country. The Libyan action seems perfectly reasonable to me.
