+ - Feds Shut Down File-Sharing Website Megaupload->

Submitted by Subratik
Subratik (1747672) writes "Today, "Federal prosecutors in Virginia have shut down one of the world's largest file-sharing sites, Megaupload.com, and charged its founder and others with violating piracy laws."

The indictment given to Megaupload cites over $500 million in lost revenue from stolen intellectual-property.

Even though SOPA has drawn insurmountable criticism from both citizens and the White House, it would seem as if the US needs less of a reason everyday to not need it passed anyway."
