I cant say so ? I did read about it today. It is not just megaupload.com ,all there sites are down. There were allot ! I do remember when rapidshare was shut down & they re appealed i believe + they won back then. I don't remember what happened with that situation. I hope we see megaupload make a comeback, just so i/we/all can see the defeat of the MPAA/RIAA & there abuse of copyright law ! The charge$ are so high, people have no chance in hell, unless you are rich. I mean look at the fines + the jail time 20+ years ! WTF.
The copyright laws are so flawed .It is destroying the peoples lives & the internet as we know it
ALL OVER A SELF MADE LAW "COPYRIGHT". WE/PEOPLE ARE JUDGED, LIKE MURDERS OVER THIS. Destroying peoples lives ,over a movie/song ,OMFG. This is no more than a power trip of control. I just cant see it being legit/fair anymore. They want us/people to be at ground zero in fear ,with no resources to fight them. They never give the average person a FAIR CHANCE, to prove there innocence, EVER ! They want full control over every user on the internet, cause they know they cant find you at home ,if people share..
There is no doubt in my mind ,that i 100% believe the MPAA & these other scumbags are paying off lawyers. Paying them soooo much, that they pull strings & it will always be a win . When was the last time we had ever hear of anybody winning against the MPAA ?
It is not the SOPA & all this crap that needs to pass .The copyright infringement law needs to be redone/trashed. It should have never been Signed from George W J Bush. That bastard gave the mpaa , the worst dirty group power to abuse the LAW !
Look on torrentfreak.com .. A lawyer got suspended for 2 years in the UK for taking bribes to prosecute people from downloading music ,online ! It is ridiculous& it pisses me off that this kind of stuff is not on the news !
