I'm pretty sure that they're overstepping their legal bounds and this will just blow over soon.

They're protected by the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) in that they aren't responsible for offensive content if they remove it at the owning group's request. -_-

It's also worth mentioning that there was a *ton* of legal content on MU, so this is going to be one ugly lawsuit.

If the feds get away with shutting down MegaUpload, I'm going to be pissed.

Awesome last name though for a web master don't you think. To be honest FS is the way forward i think.

But surely you realize that if the feds can get away with taking down MegaUpload, they can take down FileServe... and FileSonic... and HotFile... and RapidShare... etc. -_-

Crap, I liked MU since it was so easy to download from without having to pay.

I'll never pay for any of these DDL services to download illegal rips for the sole fact that I'd rather invest that money in the actual people creating the anime.

O well, even if they close all DDL facilities there'll still be torrents, IRC bots, usenet, DC hubs, FTP servers... it'll never stop.

This is from twitter.

The government takes down #Megaupload? 15 minutes later #Anonymous takes down government & record label sites. #ExpectUs

They took down MPAA and RIAA too it seems.
lol I'm so enjoying this.

This is one of the few times that I've appreciated Anonymous. -_-

Still, this is probably just going to make things worse in the end.

This entire situation is ridiculous.

While I can see/understand why Anonymous is doing this... I can't help but think this will only cause more heat more quickly which will more likely end badly. Plus when we have hackers attacking the government it's likely to persuade those who were just barely against these bills to switch to the darkside and support them just to try and say 'in your face Anonymous scum'. :/ I mean I may be over-hyping this, but I just don't see it ending good.

Also, what is AnimePassions or more specifically Cman21's plan about AnimePassion if things turn sour?

Look on the bright side.

At least you wasn't considering it last week.




Cause then you'd have only used a lifetime account for a week.

Wasn't megavideo multilingual, originllay? I only see an option for English.
Looks suspicious to me.


Edit: I had all my shared files hosted on their servers. Hundreds of Gigs are lost now :(
