+ - London UK Police demand summary domain takedown, hijack traffic to competing www->

Submitted by Stunt Pope
Stunt Pope (3287) writes "This morning Toronto based domain registrar easyDNS received a request from the City of London (UK) police demanding that they summarily take down a bittorrent search site based out of Singapore — or else they would "refer the matter to ICANN" — suggesting easyDNS could lose its accreditation.

They directed them to point all traffic for the domain at an IP address that promoted competing commercial online music services based out of London, UK."
