UK authorities take down a U.S. domain: Could it happen to you?

Summary: If you thought the Patriot Act ‘debacle’ was one-sided, with U.S. authorities striking at the heart of Europe, UK authorities can hit back just as hard.

A UK law enforcement agency has shut down a popular music blog in the style of a U.S. Department of Homeland Security domain name seizure.

If done on either side of the pond after due process, I fully support the take downs. That includes being tried in abstentia since some don't respond to a summons.

Without due process it is just the Really Big Brother at work.

The title is a bit misleading, if you look up the WHOIS information it is registered to a Brit via GoDaddy. The website IP is in the UK also (NOTE: WHOIS record was recently updated so the authorities might have something to do with that part).

Takedowns take place at a DNS level, most often.
