Lawmakers seek to seize domains in anti-piracy war - TechSpot News

The Obama administration released its plans last June to take a tougher stance against Internet piracy, and Monday US lawmakers released their contribution: legislation that could allow the Department of Justice to seize the domain names of websites that promote copyright infringement. Introduced by Senator Patrick Leahy and dubbed the "Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act," the bill once again raises the issues of intellectual property rights versus Internet usage control and censorship. Proponents include the MPAA, RIAA, and the Screen Actors Guild, which stated, "This legislation will make it easier to shut down 'rogue' websites, which are dedicated to stealing the films, television programs and music created by our members."

Just another taxes of your taxes at work..

Most of these sites aren't even hosted in the USA, so how is it going to be possible for the US Gov't to confiscate them?

Very simple. Stop all ISP in the U.S.A. from letting those sites get through. Kind of like parental control except used by the ISP against know bad sites.
