EFF: Kentucky domain seizures flawed on many levels
In September, the state of Kentucky won a legal victory in its fight to control gambling within its borders, as a judge ordered the seizure of the domain name registrations of a variety of online gambling outfits. Although the ruling targeted 141 sites, the legal challenge has been accepted by two of the businesses targeted, which have filed an appeal in the case. Their appeal has now been joined by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, ACLU, and the Center for Democracy and Technology, who use an amicus brief to argue that the initial seizure ruling was flawed on several levels.
