Megaupload has been shut down!

Mostly praise goes here. And anything icefilms or scene related that doesn't fit anywhere else. NO REQUESTS. NO TECHNICAL ISSUES. NO ideas or feature requests.

Oh, this is really disturbing. Looking for confirmation...

Edited: I see you've got a second confirmation. :(

This is ICE. SOPA isn't law yet.

sad thing is the SOPA hasn't even passed yet they are still able to shut down sites that comply with DMCA. This is just the entertainment industry backlash about the sopa failure.

McLEAN, Va. – Federal prosecutors in Virginia have shut down one of the world's largest file-sharing sites, Megaupload.com, and charged its founder and others with violating piracy laws.

The indictment accuses the company of costing copyright holders more than $500 million in lost revenue from pirated films and other content. The indictment was unsealed Thursday, one day after websites shut down in protest of two congressional proposals intended to thwart the online piracy of copyrighted movies and TV programs.

Megaupload.com has claimed it is diligent in responding to complaints about pirated material.

The indictment says at one point, Megaupload was the 13th most popular website in the world.

They face 20 years in prison for racketeering, and 5 years in prison for each charge of copyright infringement. Oi...it makes Hana's sentence from Ninja look like a cakewalk. (Not making light of it....because it's horrible for her and the others facing sentencing there.)

What about XBMC users? 2Shared is not supported. All we are left is Navi-X I guess?
