    MegaUpload didn't violate ANY copyright laws. The people who kept files on their servers? Well that's a different matter.

    MegaUpload sold storage space. That's all. They have a procedure for removing copyrighted materials off their servers and much of it was.

    If I'm renting storage space to someone who is using it to keep stolen goods in, I wouldn't be responsible for that crime now would I?

    Neither is MegaUpload.

    Megaupload was a site
    Bullshit. Megaupload was a site that was created by a known hacker hiding under multiple aliases for the sole purpose of stealing copyrighted content. Well in all fairness if I was a 300 pound fat man and my name were Kim Schmitz I would probably hide it too. In any case it was always about stealing. And now he has started another site called Mega. Hopefully they will shut that one down too.
