Delete. *poof* Gone.

If you haven’t heard or seen, the government now has the capability to completely delete (erm I mean seize it) a domain name and subsequently the entire website along with it, even if your site is merely and purposefully linking to other sites with illegal content.

So what happens when someone comes to the realization that sellers on eBay are selling counterfeit items such as movies? Will or would the government delete eBay.com? What about walmart.com or some other retailer that may come under fire for inadvertently selling counterfeit goods? Will they shut down a multi-billion business? Do they realize they’re wiping out entire portions of the internet and it’s infrastructure? Do they realize there are ways determined people can get around this anyways?
