    I know this is long and I am quoting the full article but this needs to be posted.

    So, if I understand correctly, an Romanian site that might be providing illegal sharing of some sort or another could be "shut down" by the US AG by ordering the DNS servers within his reach to delete the entry for "sharez.ro" including any subdomains. Then, a day or two later, anyone who was using that site will now have 241.63.141.1 bookmarked so that they can continue to use the site's services. Great.

    I think they can force the ISP to block the site and the IP.

    Will this force datacenters to do it too? If not, I have 9 servers I can use as a proxy. One is outside the US which will work anyway. Also, what would stop someone from using a DNS server outside the US?
