Feds Shut Down Megaupload.com

http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2012/...aring-website/

Federal prosecutors have shut down one of the world's largest file-sharing sites, Megaupload.com, on charges of violating piracy laws -- a day after a 24-hour blackout of popular websites such as Wikipedia drew national attention to the issue.

"This action is among the largest criminal copyright cases ever brought by the United States," the Justice department said in a statement about the indictment.

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.

Update 14 from site linked in SuperTaz's post states that there was a reported 27,000+ PC's involved in the DOJ attack... that along with the other recent events of the past few months including SOPA and PIPA make it seem as though we are the lowly mortals caught between a battle of the Gods and Titans in ancient Greek mythology... who's who though, that's my question?

I have the soft drinks but did you bring a bag large enough to sneak it into the movie theater so we can get out $50 cheaper for the night???

This is horrendous how those mobs raided the guys house and locked him in the cell and the way they treated him. I'm with resistance on that one, I think we should all be..

Looks like he is starting another Mega site up again:

http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2012/12/...com-successor/

Dotcom just uploaded several screenshots to Twitter showing the Mega service, his planned successor the Megaupload service.

The new screens show the ultrasecure, 2048-bit encryption that will secure files sent to the servers, which will be hosted at the New Zealand-based domain Mega.co.nz, the Next Web reported.
