WTF, America

Dear U.S.A, are you now completely nuts? The US now claims that all .com and .net websites are in its jurisdiction. If you own a .com URL, then you have to follow US law? Seriously? They appear to now go after all so called copyright infringement and trademark violations on .com and .net domains, even if they are on your own servers, in non-US countries. They already want a british student to be handed over from Britain to the US for this, to face jail time there. For creating a link list on his own Webserver. WTF.
The US also recently has ceized numerous .com domains, without talking to the owners previously.

What has the world come to? I'm now seriously thinking about using .at instead of .com in the future.

six comments, already:

... and this makes me even more happy that I have chosen .de domains and not .com :D

And what’s wrong? Isn’t copyright protected by international law? Isn’t America the World Executive Power already? Isn’t that a great way to travel to America for free?

I feel like this scenario must have been predicted at some point.

Also: seized, not ceized
