Police: domain could be blocked without a court order

Mounted officer of the British Metropolitan Po...Image via WikipediaInteresting find on Richard M. Stallman's political notes. Ridiculous. Serious crimes... oh yeah, file sharing. That is reaaally so important. Maybe the police can shoot the server in self-defense, too.

Police: domain could be blocked without a court order:
"The domain registrar for .uk proposes to
block domains on request from the police.
Police say this will only be used in case of "serious crime", such
as file sharing (!). They are getting quite clever at disguising
their evil agenda.
Imagine if your landlord could kick you out on request from the
police,
or if your mail delivery could be cut off on request from the police."
