US judge orders hundreds of sites "de-indexed" from Google, Facebook

Luxury goods maker Chanel has convinced a judge to order the seizure of hundreds of Internet domain names and to order the names blocked from "all" search engines and social media networks.

As soon as i read this title, i thought the same as pointed in the post:

I'm not sure how this court can direct a registry to change a domain name's registrar of record or Google to de-list a site, but the court does so anyway. This is probably the most problematic aspect of the court's orders.

I'd like to see how this unfolds in the future.
