According to TorrentFreak, the FBI is detaining Cogent employees - COGENT, a third party.

A source has just informed TorrentFreak that the FBI are currently detaining everyone at the ISP Cogent Communicationsí headquarters in Washington DC, in connection with a Mega-related search warrant.

Ignorance knows no bounds. This is just further proof that SOPA/PIPA has/had nothing to do with protecting copyrights, it was about censorship - this is a perfect example of how they don't even need SOPA ... they have no trouble as it is making a US law reach all the way to New Zealand.

I don't know if today is a worse day to be a website operator or a datacenter worker.

Sad, really.
