MEGAUPLOAD.com has been seized by the FBI (and you thought they needed SOPA)... Answered
With all the discussion about SOPA & PIPA, the blackout and the White House pulling their approval of the legislation (as its written only), you would think nothing more would come of this for a while...
A very popular file host - MegaUpload.com has been canned.
If you go to their website you'll see the big FBI "Anti-Piracy Warning" about the fact that they are allegedly involved in:
"Conspiracy to Commit Racketeering",
"Conspiracy to Commit Copyright Infringement",
"Conspiracy to Commit Money Laundering" and
"Criminal Copyright Infringement"
The New Zealand Police have raided several homes and businesses linked to the owner of MegaUpload.com.
Its only a matter of time before other similar websites start disappearing.
And you thought they needed SOPA to do all this... o_0
