In a huge initial victory for Indymedia, the two servers recently seized by the FBI were returned this morning to Rackspace (the hosting service where the servers were first taken from). Indymedia is now weighing additional legal options after this illegal seizure of its servers.

I know that you have gone through more than I can possibly understand. I was just told that the court order is being complied with and your servers in London will be online at 5pm GMT.
I will pass along anymore information that becomes available and that I am allowed to.
Again, I do not have the words to understand nor express the feelings and emotions you have endured since this began.

I also spoke to rackspace (Jacques) on the phone waaaaay too early this morning. ;)
So rackpace is ready to power the boxes up now. We are in a brief holding pattern before we have them flip the switch. We will treat the boxes as compromised (cracked/hacked) servers.
It is believed that the original data is on the drive, but we haven’t been able to verify this yet. That is a loooooooooooooooooooooong process.
Rackspace did say that the drives were the originals (so the gov’t probably cloned them).
