It doesn't require them to opt-in per se, but it sure helps.

If we don't get cooperation, we have to work out the dns records the best we can. Its easier if site owners do it themselves.

As I understood, blockaid requires the domain owner to opt in, right?

Why is that ? Don't you have too few domains hosted?

That's exactly what we do at BlockAid. We have the ability to detect when domains are seized and then circumvent the seizure where necessary.

And we also slave OpenNic domains, so you get the best of both worlds.

Apologies for the shameless advertising.

That is simply not acceptable. Don't mess with our internet.

Would it be possible to retrieve the original DNS entries for seized domains?

If we could do so, I am convinced we should host seized domains.

Ultimately, if we could detect seized domains or retrieve an updated list somewhere, then retrieve the original DNS entries, and host all of them, that would give OpenNIC a lot of credit as an alternative root, and fight this seizure practice.

Internet does not belong to Hollywood, it belongs to all of us.

Ha ha, yes of course, I see your point.

Mine was simply that the corporate powers that be are flexing their
muscles again and in new territory.

I see in the comments of that article that OpenNIC is mentioned and
the points about being underground are interesting on at least a
couple of levels.
