Corporations Shut Down Megaupload

19 01 2012

Welcome to SOPA: stage 1. This is the kind of thing that will be happening on a daily basis if SOPA and PIPA pass. Megaupload, one of the biggest free file hosting sites on the internet has been taken down by the FBI and is being sued by the MPAA and RIAA. And Megaupload isn’t even a US site. So look out world, the USA appears to have jurisdiction on you regardless of where you are in the world.

Here’s the full story if anyone wants to read it: http://www.digitalspy.ca/tech/news/a361102/megaupload-shut-down-by-us-officials.html

Sounds to me like the MPAA and RIAA were threatened by the blackout. We may be many different, insignificant individuals, but we are one internet. And one internet is far stronger than they realize.
