Has anybody tried bringing a criminal complaint for interference with computer (network) data?

Certainly, hijacking google.com NS records to JOMAX.NET would be a criminal interference.  After all, that's all DNSsec signed now, isn't it?

Arguably, substituting a false reply for NXDOMAIN would be, too.

It's time to find a champion to lead the charge.  Maybe Google?
