DreamHost vs. the United States DOJ
The Department of Justice is giving web-hosting company, DreamHost, a waking nightmare. The service is being forced to fight against a wide-reaching DOJ warrant demanding private information about millions of visitors to a specific website on their servers.
At the heart of the matter is the DreamHost domain: www.disruptj20.org/. This website organized political protests against the current President’s administration, protests which are constitutionally protected under the First Amendment. Despite a lack of justification, the DOJ is after the following information about visitors to www.disruptj20.org:
- Email content
- Outgoing emails and their recipients
- Incoming emails and their senders
- Personal information
- Contact data for website owner(s)
- Contact data for website administrators
- Collected contact data from website visitors
- Site visitor photographs
- Unpublished blog posts
- Unpublished photo & video
Make no mistake – this is a chilling overextension of power by the DOJ. This type of government overreach for a protest website is NOT normal in a western democracy, and should NOT be tolerated. It directly undermines the freedom of association granted to Americans in the First Amendment, as well as the right to privacy afforded by the Fourth Amendment.
For their part, DreamHost is valiantly opposing this DOJ request, and IPVanish fully supports them in their efforts. We also support you in your freedoms of speech and assembly, and your natural right to privacy. Use IPVanish to protect your constitutional rights – take 50% off when you sign up for a 1 year IPVanish plan. But hurry, this offer ends August 23, 2017.
