U.S. Authorities Shut Down WordPress Host With 73,000 Blogs

RE: U.S. Authorities Shut Down WordPress Host With 73,000 Blogs
Copyright infringement, I prefer the term sharing, presents all sorts of constriction of information and red tape. Abolishment / Filtering / Legal Actions against sites is throwing a blockade into the transfer of information across the board. Sweeping shutdowns such as taking down an entire blog server, phasing out an entire protocol and redefining fair use on a whim is simply unjust.

It's not even enforced fairly. Take Google Books creating a monopoly on digital out of print books for example:

There are no others, there is only us.
