FBI Seize Poker Websites

by Christopher Paul on April 15, 2011

Mike Masnick on news the FBI seized online poker domains:

Even if you accept the idea that these sites are breaking the law — which is a big open question — is it really okay to simply seize the domains prior to an adversarial hearing? File charges, bring it to court, and have the government ask for an injunction, allowing the site operators to state the basics of their case. Seizing the domains seems like a massive government overreach (yet again).
