Legal And bam, MegaUpload.com is no more. The FBI has arrested four people behind the popular file-sharing website, and is looking for three more, in a worlwide investigation into the website. Apparently, the site is super-dangerous - the indictment behind the arrests minces no words. As a countermeasure, people claiming to be from Anonymous took down the websites of ViaCom and the Department of Justice. Update: Ars has analysed the indictment. It's pretty damning, but does have a few weird odds and ends. Update II: And more and more sites are falling by Anonymous' hands. Largest operation in their history.

Batman did it in "The Dark Knight". It was alright there. It's alright here, too. Arresting fat fucks like Kim Schmitz who sit on their fat asses in Hong Kong, counting their considerable revenue coming from a platform which despite all your sorry-ass excuses was mainly used for sharing illegal material, where's the fuckin' difference to Batman's money-laundering mob?

I get sick of hearing and reading: "Hey, it's an attack on free speech and the freedom of the net and stuff!" from people who are merely inconvenienced because now they have to go look for another hosting platform where they can acquire their stuff without paying. Cry me a fuckin' river.
