FBI Charges Megaupload With Piracy Crimes , Basically MegaUpload Gets Taken Down

Today we seen the top executives from over at Megaupload  indicted and charged with violating piracy laws. The Megaupload website was today taken down after Federal prosecutors claimed that the website had cost copyright holders $500million + due to the amount of copyrighted movies , music and games which were uploaded to the site.

Universal Music Group filed a lawsuit towards Megaupload late last year due to a video from Megaupload which featured artists signed to Universal.

One good point being made is if the government can pull sites down like this so easily now why do they need to pass SOPA and PIPA ?

REPORTED : Anonymous take down Recording Industry Association of America In Response To Megaupload
