FBI probes DOS attacks against antipiracy sites
A hacker group called “4chan” has launched anonymous denial of service attacks on websites of organizations heavily involved in copyright litigation, according to a CNET story by Greg Sandoval, link here. The FBI is investigating attacks that took down a number of these sites, including that of the US Copyright Office. The group apparently takes the “extremist” position that copyright protection is a kind of censorship.
