late night humor: crowdsourcing around domain seizures

I love this: Firefox Add-on ‘Undoes’ U.S. Government Domain Seizures

The seizure of file-sharing related domain names by the US Government hasn’t been as effective as the entertainment industries had hoped since many of them simply continued their operations under new domains. To make these type of domain transitions go more smoothly, an anonymous group has coded a simple Firefox add-on that automatically redirects users to these new homes.

Transparency takes on double meaning here 😀
