Feds shut down M E G A - U P L O A D

Feds Shut Down File-sharing Website $$$$$$$$$$.com | Fox News

Quote:
MCLEAN, VA. Federal prosecutors in Virginia have shut down one of the world's largest file-sharing sites, $$$$$$$$$$.com, and charged its founder and others with violating piracy laws.

The indictment accuses the company of costing copyright holders more than $500 million in lost revenue from pirated films and other content. The indictment was unsealed Thursday, one day after websites shut down in protest of two congressional proposals intended to thwart the online piracy of copyrighted movies and TV programs.

$$$$$$$$$$.com has claimed it is diligent in responding to complaints about pirated material.

The indictment says at one point, $$$$$$$$$$ was the 13th most popular website in the world.
edit;
It's M E G A-U P L O A D that is shut down..
not sure why RS blanks it out...

Doesn't the US Government have WAY bigger issues then protecting Hollywood's interests. It's not like they're the oil lobby or something.

Shutting down $$$$$$$$$$ is like shutting down a storage facility because someone was storing something illegal in one of the units.

Pure speculation by me, but unless their servers were actually based in the US, I would assume this is like many of other sites that the US government has shut down, where the site itself isn't gone, just that they took over the DNS entry for it.

So possibly very soon, we may see the site being changed to $$$$$$$$$$.tv or something, which will point to the same servers we've always seen.

We'll see, I guess...

why is the word mega-upload being censored on this site!?? Isn't this what we are all fighting against? Surely we should be able to mention a word if not linking to it!


Voldemort. Just testing..

Because RS lost our Google ads for the second time because of Diggy posting links to copyrighted material. We lost a lot of monetization 'cause of that fat fuck.
