hutsell writes: "A filed letter from the U.S. Attorney's Office authorized the storage companies, Carpathia Hosting, Inc. and Cogent Communications Group Inc., to begin deleting data Thursday. If the two outside companies hired by MegaUpload to operate their web servers follows through, it will also include (as collateral damage) legitimate user content mixed with the content charged with being illegal.

The article from cbsnews said, " ... it could be deleted as soon as Thursday."; but failed to mention how this will affect the case against the seven men being charged with the crime of assisting in the millions of illegal downloads."
