OK, so someone asked Amazon to pull the plug on the wikileaks.org domain, and they complied. And the U.S. seems to be up in arms against that poor Assange chap who apparently underestimated what his leaks would actually do to his life.
But anyway, I wonder why the U.S. authorities do not simply pull the plug on the .org domain name. They certainly have begun to redirect domain names that seem to host copyright infringing content, right? And, by any means, the secret messages from U.S. embassies around the world are certainly protected by copyright (if nothing else).
Could someone explain this to me? Why don't the U.S. go after the domain name?
