Do you Know about?

U.S.A's Dept of Homeland Security asks Mozilla to remove add-on(s) which encourage piracy.

In recent months, we had seen a number of seizure of domains of file sharing sites by US Govt, accused of promoting piracy.

Now Mozilla feels the heat of US Govt over removing add-on which promote similar piracy by letting visitor to visit the site which was seized by Govt, existing under other addresses.

But is said that Mozilla, developer of the Firefox Web browser, is holding off on complying with a government request to remove one of such software tool until it receives court order or any such similar legitimate legal order.

One such add-on for Firefox is the MafiaaFire tool, developed by an outside party, lets user to match and redirect automatically match seized names with the alternate addresses, similar to a mail-forwarding service.
