On December 9, the US filed a complaint for civil forfeiture in the Southern District of New York against the seven domain names seized this past summer as part of Operation in Our Sites.
I just came across this and haven’t seen it elsewhere, so I’ve posted a copy of the complaint below.
Pursuant to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the US has also posted notice of the forfeiture action atÂ http://www.forfeiture.gov/ViewNotice.aspx?n=36666&a=0.

The forfeiture.gov link seems to have changed several times. I’ve updated it to a correct link as of 1/4/2011, but if it doesn’t work for you, you can do a “notice search” on forfeiture.gov for “tvshack” to see the notice.
