The EasyDNS blog has an excellent – albeit scary – post
on the U.S. government seizure of bodog.com, the Canadian-owned online gambling site. The domain was seized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security despite the fact that it was Canadian registered. The only U.S. connection is that the dot-com registry is located in the U.S. The move sends a message that all dot-com, dot-net, and dot-org domains are ultimately subject to U.S. jurisdiction.
