U.S. Authorities Shut Down File Sharing Sites [bbc.co.uk]
|More than 70 sites alleged to be selling counterfeit goods or offering pirated content have been shut down by the US government. |
The action was taken by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, part of the US Department of Homeland Security.
Domains seized included a BitTorrent search engine, music download sites and shops selling fake designer clothing.
Many of the sites who lost their domains have continued trading via alternative addresses.
