I read on reddit that the anons are gonna attack federal sites in retaliation :D

sucks that MU is down, it was the best, having only to wait 25seconds but can keep DLing one file after another. though Rapidshare is now better since no wait time, still RIP

"As many of you may already be aware, even without the passing of internet censorship bills SOPA and PIPA, the corrupt US Govt. has managed to shutdown Megaupload. It is our hope and our belief that this will not be permanent. As the 13th most visited website in the world, Megaupload has vast financial resources and top tier lawyers at their disposal. We expect their website to be back up soon." http://www.icefilms.info/

So does that mean Megaupload may rise again? damm i am so gona miss this site if it doesnt :(

Honestly, I wouldn't worry too much about it..give it some time and they'll be back.

In the meantime, just use other hosting sites or torrents lol.

R.I.P. Megaupload. My favourite file hosting site as it gave me the fastest speed, at the same little waiting :(
R.I.P. Megavideo, my #1 option to view videos outside youtube.
R.I.P. Megaporn. Why nobody else payed their respect to this site?

In response to today’s federal raid on the file sharing service Megaupload, hackers with the online collective Anonymous have broken the websites for the FBI, Department of Justice, Universal Music Group, RIAA, Motion Picture Association of America and Warner Music Group.

Hey America, I have a cute idea. At least sort out your health care system, hand gun violence, unemployment, public education, gay marriage, marijuana legislation and middle east conflict before you fuck around with the internet because lets face it, there are bigger issues in the world than someone uploading a photo with a musician in it.

Aika's got good taste :D melody.!

Anyway..this guy... http://compsci2012.blogspot.com/2012/01/post-01c.html has a point...I think America ran out of people to go to war with....

Mods: I'm not trying to provoke a political statement..just saying...that seems to be what they're doing...and a lot of sites we love will go down soon.

I'm not saying that I agree with Megaupload being shutting down and its employees being arrested. However, the people at Megaupload were making too much money and flaunting it at the same time. Their CEO Mr. Dotcom had a net worth of 40 million dollars. Even their graphic designer was a millionaire. They had dozens of expensive sports cars, lambourginis, etc with licenses plates of things like "Hacker," "Guilty," etc. And obviously they had full knowledge that they 90% of their filesharing was copyrighted material. There was a statement from one of their employees that the Feds obtained who said, "We're not pirates. We just offer shipping services to pirates ;)"

The case against Megaupload is a very dangerous one as it sets precedence against all other file sharing on the internet. Imagine a world without Bittorrent. :shocked:
