Check out the new US Government official takedown graphic— the thing you’ll see when a filesharing site (or some similar site which has run afoul of the law) is yanked. The example here can also be seen on tvshack.net, one of nine websites recently seized by the feds over pirated movies. The warrants for those takedowns were issued in Manhattan federal court, hence the reference to New York state. Reuters snip:
Kevin Suh, vice president of content protection for the Motion Picture Association of America, a Hollywood trade group, called the action, “Operation In Our Sites”, the “largest takedown of illegal movie and television websites in a single action by the federal government.”
I kind of want this graphic on a t-shirt.
