The FBI Shut down Mega upload for charges of piracy and are looking to arrest and charge the 4 owners of it. I have used Megaupload my use of private PC backups and now I no longer have access to them that to my Government that you very much. More information is here, act.demandprogress.org/act/megau … ?source=fb
EDIT: I have read more and more into this and have found that this was NOT related to S.O.P.A or P.I.P.A. Like I was thinking at first, And after combing the news i could find on this matter. Even though i have lost data i feel that this action IS justified and I will no longer appose its actions.
the Refusal to remove copyright works is there downfall, IF they can prove that they did more than delete just the links to the copyrighted stuff and really deleted it from there servers than they are ok. However from the looks of thing they can not prove that and are as some say it truly boned.
