FBI Takes Down Top File-Sharing Website Megaupload

Posted by TurtleGirl On January - 20 - 2012

The FBI have taken down top file-sharing website Megaupload. The founders have been charged for Internet piracy and causing $500 million in damages to copyright owners and making $175 million through selling ads and premium subscriptions.

The case against Megaupload comes at a day after broad online protests against a pair of antipiracy bills in Congress, the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA, in the House, and the Protect I.P. Act, or PIPA, in the Senate. Four of the seven people, including the site’s founder, Kim Dotcom have been arrested in New Zealand, the authorities said; the three others remain at large. Each of the seven people , who the indictment said were members of a criminal group it called “Mega Conspiracy” — is charged with five counts of copyright infringement and conspiracy. The charges could result in more than 20 years in prison.
