    Megaupload.com taken down by the FBI

    Topic pretty much explains itself.

    Related news blurb: http://www.washingtonpost.com/busine...RBQ_story.html

    While I don't particularly like MU, I'm still rooting for them -if only so they can set a landmark decision keeping better hosts from sharing their fate. Interesting timing, by the way... One day after large-scale protests against SOPA, one of the bigger players in filehosting goes down.

    Hopefully filehosts will move out of the US and move their domain name to a non-US controlled one. It's sad to see MU go, but I'm sure other site will take its place.

    Re: Megaupload.com taken down by the FBI

    I like megaupload, even with a non premium account I'm still offered with decent download speed and only 25s waiting, no waiting time between download. Sad to see they got taken down.

    Now the question is, who's next? And how far it's gonna go when SOPA/PIPA is officially approved?

    Re: Megaupload.com taken down by the FBI

    That is one major setback for me who actually upload on Megaupload. >_>
    Its like a direct hit to the heart. D:
    Oh well, will try to move on and find other filehost.

    As for the vote over SOPA/PIPA it should take place next week on January 23th if I remember.

    Sweet memories are a rare jewel which time polishes into perfection.
    Just PM/VM me if you have any Music/OSTs request
    And PM/VM me if there is any problem with my links

    To learn something may be enough for some, but to master it is the goal of those greater.
    Those who take that extra step will be the ones who are remembered.

    None of the major ones are US-based, iirc. MU however does/did have datacentres in Washington.

    RIP Megaupload. You were a good upload site that didn't force the user to answer retarded Captcha's.

    Hmm so thats why I couldn't connect to megaupload.

    Here they come america soldiers of Corporates copyrights.

    But I wonder wasn't MU main branch registered in HongKong or similar place, like the rest of the new hosts?

    Lulz celebrities get sh1t from producers, they mostly earn on the net or tickets from concerts. When I see those large Corporations crying it makes me go "Duh?", but thats probably cause I'm not from Usa.
