The Mega Upload Saga Continues And Why Is It A Concern For Me

File-It-Under: The man against file sharing!~
By: D.F.Skinner!~





This is a story that caught my focus and is drawing a lot of write ups around the Internet.Apparently the Justice Department ( Yeah those guys) has filed charges against MegaUpload today, DOJ is going as far as calling the file sharing service an "international organized criminal enterprise that is allegedly responsible for massive worldwide piracy". Here's where it gets crazy,the founder of Kim Dotcom and three other MegaUpload execs were arrested today in Aucland,New Zealand at the request of the US government,sadly more arrest and warrants to come.

Now I don't want to go into the detailed particulars of this story,you can get that from Engadget and The Verge,two of my favorite tech sites.I'm really concern though,why you may ask,well think about it,this story is breaking today right on the heels of yesterdays SOPA protest that has gained attention around the world.Plus,and a big plus,this gives the government (yeah those guys again) ammunition to really pushed this SOPA bill,just a food for thought.
