Have you guys heard about this? The domain wikilinks.org was ordered by a judge to be deleted and all DNS references to resolve to blank "parking" pages:
The Register; Google News Search For Wikileaks.

Apparently, some Swiss bank got all huffy about wikileaks publishing some of their internal papers which purport to show the bank's sleazy money laundering operation. The Swiss Bank sued and got an ex parte injunction to kill the wikileaks.org domain, an attempt to scrub the website from the internet (will they ever learn?)

Definately worries me to no end.

Of course, you can't really ever kill a website... they already had many auxillary domains and servers throughout the world: http://wikileaks.be for example. Then of course there's the fact that zapping a domain name doesn't affect this wonderful thing we call TCP/IP: http://88.80.13.160
