Submission + - Megaupload shut down with charges of piracy

mc10 writes: Federal prosecutors in Virginia say they have shut down one of the world’s largest Internet file-sharing sites, Megaupload.com, and charged its founder and others with violating piracy laws. This comes after a New York grand jury indicted Megaupload Limited and Vestor Limited on Jan. 5 for copyright infringement.

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