Jackboots in Cyberspace

Imagine if without a warrant, a political organization's office could be stormed, documents confiscated, private contact lists taken, and the organization barred from publishing information.

That's not Ashcroft's wet dream.

That's life for groups with information on the web, given the rights of corporations under the DMCA to force proceedings to strip groups of domain names and other web property without even a court order.

The newest victim is BlackBoxVoting.org, which has been exposing the Diebold voting machine scandal. Luckily, it's hard to shut people down completely in cyberspace, so go to BlackBoxVoting.com for updates.
