If you compare vb.ly's alexa rank to that of bit.ly's... it looks like Libya is fairly prompt with these issues.
vb.ly has been around for over a year, but it's popularity was hardly even measurable. They nipped them before they ever got off the ground.
I think the title "Libya Shuts Down .ly Shortener Domains" is a tad misleading... and do not think that bit.ly or ow.ly or any of the other big .ly shortener domains are at risk.
