No more Freedom of Speech on the Internet?

"Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather."

John Perry Barlow, "A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace"

Think this quote is melodramatic? Well, Homeland Security has just seized 70+ Websites for Copyright and Trademark Violations without any warning and without due process. Yes, pirating has become a huge problem on the Internet but I'm concerned with all of the site seizures without due process. What's next? If the government doesn't like what you say, will your site be next?

Please feel free to discuss your concerns here.
