The company has already helped law enforcement agencies in the US, such as the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, seize domains that were allegedly being used to sell counterfeit goods or facilitate online piracy, when the agency first obtained a court order.
Senior ICE agents are on record saying that they believe all .com addresses fall under US jurisdiction. But the new powers would be international and, according to VeriSign’s filing, could enable it to shut down a domain also when it receives “requests from law enforcement”, without a court order.
“Various law enforcement personnel, around the globe, have asked us to mitigate domain name abuse, and have validated our approach to rapid suspension of malicious domain names,” VeriSign told ICANN, describing its system as “an integrated response to criminal activities that utilize Verisign-managed [top-level domains] and DNS infrastructure”.
Investigator Links 3rd Jihadist Web Site To Tampa Host, By HOWARD ALTMAN, The Tampa Tribune, Published: February 22, 2008, Tampa continues to be the focus of an international game of Internet whack-a-mole between jihadists who put up Web sites and organizations and individuals who try to shut them down.

OCTOBER 12th, 2011……. Jihadists posted clips of unreleased al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) videos on the radical Islamist web forum, Shumukh al Islam. The two videos are called “Convoy of Martyrs,” and “The Mujahideen’s Tolerance in Their Treatment of the Captives.” In the first video, AQAP military commander Qasim al Raymi, also known as Abu Hurayrah al Sana’ani, is featured calling upon the Muslim youth to come “ride on the streets of Allah,” referring to participating in jihad.
In the second video, al Qaeda militants are shown releasing captured Yemeni soldiers who repented in an attempt to spread their message that despite what the media reports, anyone who surrenders or repents will not be harmed by them. Abu Ali al Harithi, an al Qaeda operative connected to the USS Cole bombing and killed in a November 2002 drone strike, was also a topic of discussion.
