Posted on 01/19/2012 2:35:21 PM PST by Biggirl
The Justice Department seized Megaupload.com, one of the world's most popular file-sharing sites, and several of its related sites on Thursday.
Prosecutors charged seven employees of Megaupload with criminal copyright infringement, conspiracy to commit racketeering and other charges.
Each faces up to 55 years in prison.

Yeah, if anyone deserves 55 years in prison, it’s those file sharing guys...I mean, as oppossed to child molesters, murderers, illegal aliens who chop people up and spread their body parts around the Hollywood sign and all.
Thank God we have the US federal ****ing government.
There’s your proof that we don’t need SOPA, the existing laws in place work just fine.
More crap from the media, attempting to create a false impression that the protests had something to do with protecting “piracy”.
Intent is to totally shut down the internet except for their own propaganda uses, isolate, destroy morale, ingenuity and freedom of any kind with the final solution of Agenda 21 population control.
Soilent Green will be required if Agenda 21 is ever implemented.
It’s proof that the MPAA bought Dodd, Dodd rented Congress and the White House, and the White House rented the Justice Department’s tools for international criminal warrants.
I don’t think they’ll have us eat each other (I could be wrong, it’s happened in history). They’re content with just burning us, I’m sure, then THEY may eat us, as trophies.
...and John Corzine will retire in luxury.
Anonymous takes down government & record label sites
Those in charge of Hollywood will get very little uptick as people will not buy old junk. Free old junk is an advertisement-tease to induce viewers to watch the new episodes on TV. That means more eyes for the advertisers. Free junk had placement ads that will now not be seen and some shows had full advertising — FREE TO THE ADVERTISER, who will now not benefit from those extra eyes digesting the products being sold.
This Administration is a spiteful nazi enterprise, exacting revenge upon anyone who stands in their way.
These Hollywood types are not normal people. They are faithless socialists who will pay Obama with campaign contributions. That’s a big motive.
Eventually, they will learn that they shot themselves in the penis.
More, More More, How do ya like it ??????
Hey, Skink !!
You just lost 2 million more votes.
UPS truck just drove up.
I thought it might be Obama’ Gitmo Express coming to take me away.
No doubt about it, dfw.
But, I think this is a bit much...racketeering and 55 years, seems like huge overkill.
I’m glad I’m not them >_>
There was no coverage prior to Wednesday's Protest. Imagine these evil demons giving so little coverage to a historic protest, with such importance and magnitude where the Internet rose up to fight the tyranny of Congress, Hollywood and the media. Google did the right thing. I hate the media.
Isn’t free republic also at risk to a takedown?
Yes. This thread should keep being bumped up to the top of the news.
New Zealand grabs them at the extortion of one-world government proponents.
It is a state of war against the general population of the supposed free world.
