    I visited megaupload a couple of times for downloading games when I was directed to it via the game designer him/herself. I never once saw anything where they offered money to anyone that put up copyrighted material...and yes, I looked to become a premium member because they offered faster downloads if I did so.

    Here is the indictment: Mega Indictment

    I have to say with the experience that I have had with their sites they are making a very convincing case. Honestly I feel no remorse for the pirated software that I have used before. No one lost any money from me using pirated software since I would never pay the kind of money some of that software would cost. I simply do not have that money to give. But I am not trying make money off of it either. Im telling you this so it is clear that I am not against things like per-to-peer sharing. But I am opposed to sites that charge to share software and what not. Personally I only use torrent sites and on a limited bases. I used to use DC++ but I cant seem to configure my DSL to do that anymore. But their is software the people can use to directly share large files privately. Which I use with some band mates in a project we are working on and we live in different states.

    From reading the indictment it appears that megaupload got caught with their hand in the cookie jar. And its obvious that they thought that they had a legal loophole defense if they ever got caught. This only means that other sites better learn the lessons that this is teaching them. You know like how Piratebay taught the torrent community some lessons?

    The main gist of this case would require that anyone who hosts any kind of website would be required to police the actions of those who post on it. This site could be held liable for someone posting a youtube video on it with copyrighted content. Youtube, in turn, would also be liable, despite already having won a case that said they weren't! This is a load of bull. I'll get back with more comments after I finish reading the indictment.

    You wouldn't think like that if it was your intelectual property being stolen.

    So, if I were a shareholder in a record company, I would want to live in a police state? That's what you just said. I'm saying "protecting civil liberties is the right thing to do, no matter who is doing the protecting. And you're saying I wouldn't still hold that position if I were in a position to make less money because of it? Have you met me?

    And just so you know, I'm an actor and a musician, among other things. I give away my intellectual property for free all the time.

    Their supposed "defense" of our civil liberties is a tertiary concern to notoriety and being a son of a bitch.

    on many levels

    Since when did supporting copyright mean you supported X, and HAD TO support Y and Z ideas/approaches/etc for dealign with a problem related to it, for one?
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    I thought the term "terrorism" only applied when the target was civilians. But then again, i'm not the type to render a serious word meaningless by hyperbole while trivializing the real suffering of the victims of terrorist attacks.

    Ya know, people who do that are as bad as Hitler! See what I did there?
