Mozilla Faces Down DHS

For awhile now, the Immigration, Customs Enforcement (ICE) Authority at Dep't of Homeland Security (DHS) has been seizing domain names for sites it claims provide access to infringing material. Someone developed an extension for Firefox called MAFIAFire that seemlessly reroutes users for any domains so seized. As related in this TechDirt Piece, DHS demanded Mozilla take down the extension. Mozilla responded with this excellent request for further information from DHS to "help [Mozilla] evaluate the request."

Nice to see someone stand up for due process.
