    yup. and this is the real reason why all these sites were stopped. not because of SOPA or PIPA. probably just a coincidence. but i suppose the investigation and research to create the two bills actually led to it.

    much like how the hunt for Mas Selamat led to the arrest and capture of many illegal immigrants and gambling den operators

    the advertisements on these file sharing sites is very profitable.

    Funny what well known celebrities will endorse if you throw money at their face.

    P Diddy, Will.i.am, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, The Game, Mary J Blige and more endorsing Megaupload.

    Why am I surprised Kim Dotcom is the World's top CoD: MW3 player for Xbox 360?

    Another "unexpected" twist of events?

    Megaupload cannot be tried in the States.

    now FBI hold 25 petabytes of data . (1 PB = 1000000000000000B = 10005 B = 1015 B = 1 million gigabytes = 1 thousand terabytes ).
    Can you imaging how expensive they spent on servers, hardware and maintenance..

    http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-17486841

    Megaupload, digital rights groups and the company left holding the data have called for it to be released to users.
