PATRIOT Act, The Canadians and some lovely domain stories

PATRIOT Act or Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 has been created with the goal to offer a better surveillance of suspicious behavior in order to provide US citizens more protection.

Interestingly enough different Government agencies got the opportunity to simply, skip a legal warrant in their duties as watchdogs. Limiting a series of civil liberties and, sometimes, propagatis some degree of mass hysteria, they are able to control almost any kind of data housed on US servers.

In the video above Canadians are instructed to move their data on Canadian servers and it seems that many will follow suit and simply move their websites in other countries just because in US it is far too easy to have a site shut down without even knowing why. I have a friend who had some sites shut down without notice.

If you have domains managed by US registrars like .com, .net, .org or .biz then take care. And yes, Go Daddy, you SOPA lover, you. You’d really like to be the only registrar in US, right? Well, you can go down the drain with your crappy hosting. Video via [Storage Pipe].
