ICE Continues to Seize Counterfeit Domain Names

News Bits

iceOver the past several months a series of domain name seizures by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) made headlines across the Internet.

Under the flag of “Operation In Our Sites” the authorities shut down a dozen file-sharing and streaming sites and many more accused of selling counterfeit goods.

The last copyright related domain was seized in May, but during the last weeks several counterfeit domains were taken by the authorities.

The domain names below were seized in the past 24 hours.

* ebayshoppingjoy.com
* newerahatsnow.com
* newerahatss.com
* pumaforever.com

Whether ICE and DOJ’s increased focus on counterfeit sites means that ‘pirate’ sites are off the hook for now has yet to be seen.
