Re: Megaupload is shut down by the feds, and its executives arrested.
Yes, but .... the very nature of the Internet is that it can't easily be closed down. As fast as you shut one area another pops up. That was the idea behind it in the first place.
Authorities the world over are worried sick about this because it undermines them. People are reacting in all sorts of ways that could never have been imagined. The music business is just one that is changing as a result of the Internet. The political scene is also changing as a result of the actions of Mr Assange. I don't suppose he is the only one either.
Without large scale oppression of the Internet I don't see how any of these things can be stopped.
