What differentiates this from many of the earlier domain name seizures is that
this is based on a grand jury indictment, not just an administrative decision
by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. It may be heavy-handed or questionable,
per the Ars Technica analysis, but as a matter of process it's about as good
as you'll get.
