Congress members question Homeland Security over domains seized 'without sufficient due process and transparency'
Members of United Stated Congress have approached the Department of Homeland Security in regards to domains that have been seized by the agency. In a letter directed to Attorney General Holder and Secretary Napolitano, the members question Homeland Security's procedures and jurisdiction when action is taken to bring down sites that may violate copyright laws.
The letter specifically references one case involving hip hop website Dajaz1, which was taken down by the Department of Homeland Security after being accused of linking to copyrighted songs. Over a year later, the domain was restored, but little to no information regarding the seizure was ever provided by Homeland Security either during or after the case.
