  Week in review: Revenge of the fedsI'
Is it just me, or does this sound chilling to you as well:

Week in review: Revenge of the feds: "Homeland Security agents from several divisions served search warrants on 10 people around the country suspected of being involved with the Elite Torrents site, and took over the group's main server."

Silly me. I thought Homeland Security was supposed to be about terrorism, not intellectual property. I'm not taking a position here on whether or not the Bit Torrent site was involved in IP theft, or on peer to peer sharing generally. I'm just saying that even if you grant that this is a flagrant and egregious violation of creative and intellectual property rights, what has that got to do with 'Homeland Security'?
