Re: Megaupload is shut down by the feds, and its executives arrested.
I don't think I set out to answer anything other than why this is in the news.
Old media interests (e.g Murdock empire) vs new media interests (e.g Google). That pretty much guarantees it will be on TV, in the newspapers and on the web whereever you look.
As to Google's power to now avoid regulation - well yes they have engaged in some shabby practices in the PRC - but it is a measure of Google's influence that the Government of the PRC engage with them at all! Wow!
Live well. It is the best revenge.
