And all without due process. Opened an indictment, and before going to trial and convicting anyone of anything, they shut down one of the largest file storage places in the world.

Has it begun?

Re: BREAKING!! Megaupload.com shut down
THIS IS HUGE!!!

They arrested the CEO, Who is a citizen of hong kong and new zealand, for extradition to the U.S. THEY AREN'T EVEN A US CITIZEN. And they were arrested for crimes they didn't commit in the U.S., caliming juristdiction becaue something was hosted on a server in virginia.

HOW IS THIS LEGAL???

THIS IS SOPA WITHOUT EVEN USING SOPA.

If the owners get 20+ years in prison I highly doubt you will see 1000 new sites pop up LOL. Looks like they are being used to set an example (same thing RIAA did)

Um, the reason it's considered theft, is because if you copy a cd or dvd then you won't be buying it from the store...but so what, I wouldn't buy them anyway...cd's and dvd's are too fragile and are too expensive to replace...
