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

Is that really all, TMS? Does that not strike you as an oversimplification, given Google's well-documented predilection for working closely with governments, even when they are engaged in questionable behaviour? China's censorship of the internet being perhaps the best, but by no means the only example. A company does not rise to the stature of Google without the co-operation of nation states. I don't believe for a moment that Google has greater power than the states, and other powerful interests, that have permitted it to exist in the first place.
