Default Re: Megaupload is shut down by the feds, and its executives arrested.

Two things to note; SOPA, PIPA, ACTA, etc. are all wars of attrition in the digital realm. I guarantee you they're going to run different variants of this up the flag pole for a number of years to come. Secondly, the shutting down of Megaupload is a prime example of how they don't actually need any of this legislation. The U.S. federal government was able to shut down an international site with the help of several other nations.
