Kentucky’s Domain Seizure Sets Terrible Precedent

Last month a Kentucky judge gave the state the ability to seize 141 gambling related domain names, even though the domains were located out of the United States.

For example, China could decide that the BBC website violates its laws and demand that the BBC domain name be turned over to the Chinese government.”
