Ben Metcalfe: “The domain was seized by the Libyan domain registry for reasons which seemed to be kept obscure until we escalated the issue. We eventually discovered that the domain has been seized because the content of our website, in their opinion, fell outside of Libyan Islamic/Sharia Law.”
During the .ly land rush I recall folks warning this could happen. Now it has happened. I feel sorry for anyone using .ly, especially folks like bit.ly. Can you imagine if they get their domain got revoked?
The internets could break at any moment.
