Default Megaupload shut down

APNewsBreak: Workers indicted at one of world’s largest file-sharing sites, Megaupload.com - The Washington Post

Quote:
Federal prosecutors in Virginia have shut down one of the world’s largest file-sharing sites, Megaupload.com, and charged its founder and others with violating piracy laws.

The indictment accuses the company of costing copyright holders more than $500 million in lost revenue from pirated films and other content. The indictment was unsealed Thursday, one day after websites shut down in protest of two congressional proposals intended to thwart the online piracy of copyrighted movies and TV programs.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If Megaupload doesn't get back in business, all we have is Mediafire. Everything else is shit.

2012 is kicking off to a great start.

First SOPA/PIPA and now MU's gone. AND IT'S ONLY JANUARY.

Without SOPA the entertainment industry needs the excuse of copyright infringement to get rid of things they see as a threat.

Well from that news, Anonymous peeps took down (at least) the French HADOPI website (which is basically the "smooth" and lazy version of sopa in France) (Error)

Note that the law itself isnt really effective so to say in France. XD

Anonymous took down Whitehouse.gov, The Department of Justice and a few other websites over this. They're super pissed. Also Swizz Beatz, a musician, is the CEO of Megaupload. Oh the irony.

some of the sites listed seem to be working fine.

anyway this is fruitless. megaupload probably would have had a better time resisting the gubment if they hadn't used servers in the states. i fear for all the other file storage sites, i only lost like 800mb of stuff from megaupload.

Why are people getting all fired up about this? It's not like it's the first time the US Government shut down a pirating website.

It's probably the first time they have shut down a pirating website that people payed money to use.
The only big ones I can think of were torrent sites and no one ever bought a premium account for that.
Probably one of the reasons some people are so mad.

That and the timing with all this SOPA stuff.
just seems like the elite are really out for control.

Paying for a pirating website then getting mad when it gets shutdown. I don't know if just ignorant or trolling.

I've seen plenty of people complaining that they had time left on their premium account etc.
Seems like a reasonable explanation for why some people are mad.
I don't get how I'm supposed to be ignorant or trolling from drawing that conclusion.

Because Megaupload wasn't just a pirating site. It had tons of legitimate content on it and people paid large amounts of money to have their files stored for personal use, back up and many other reasons. And then the government went and shut it down, obliterating all of the content on it.

No no, that wasn't aimed towards you. I meant the people who are complaining about losing their premium pirating accounts. Sorry if I wasn't being clear.

I don't think that applies in this case, especially when the MU employees themselves were aware of, and even participated and profited from, said illegal activity.
