You probably know the website MEGAUPLOAD, a website for webstorage and where users can store and share their files, but we all know the main use for it is not to share personal files.
As i made a new round at the websites i visit i saw this news : FBI shuts down megaupload.
I was so surprised because megaupload has been around for years and years,so they probably had set up their website in a way that it wouldn`t violate copyright but lets be honest, thats where all the money and accesses came from.

The megaupload owners made more than 175 million dollars just from copyright protected material which cause damage to those rights in the value of 500 million dollars. Thats a lot of money and i never thought they would generate this much money.
The owner has been already arrested by the FBI.

<strong>What do you think of the megaupload shutdown? Have you ever used the website?
Did you think this might have anything to do with the new anti-piracy law?</strong>
