Extra, extra, read all about it! Beleaguered independent indymedia has had their servers and drives confiscated from their host Rackspace by way of some kind of secret court order. The provider isn't allowed to discuss the reasons or facts of the order, except that it was a warrant and they were obliged to comply. Since the seizure, a new server and backup copies of the site have gone back online. Previous incidents include a Secret Service investigation into pictures posted anonymously to a French-run site, hosted in England, that supposedly showed Swiss undercover police. That's right... The FBI might be doing this to threaten an American company with foreign subsidiaries and locations, somehow using US courts to block media in other countries. Read for yourself, though, and come to your own conclusions.
