Subject: [mythsoc] Techno-suggestions from internet savants, please
As some of you may know, a site offering illegal Tolkien e-texts
for dowload received a C&D from the Estate's lawyers a couple of
years ago- well, they have (boastfully) offshored their
enterprise, by using a .tv domain name- in other words the
website is nominally under the jurisdiction of the Tuvalu
Islands (not, to my knowledge, a Berne signatory).
However, I seriously doubt that this server is actually,
physically located midway between Hawaii and Fiji. It very
likely is in a Western counrtry, probably Anglophone.
So, to the technogolmor: how would one go about tracking the
physical location of a Web sever.. for delivery of course, raw
and wriggling, to Manches PLC?
