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.

I'm raising a valid point: the foreign policies of governments almost always have willing and all-too-happy local support from local agents/factions/governments.

I'm a citizen of one country, but my place of the permanent residence is in another country. Both countries suffer from US policies' enforcement and are particularly unhappy with them. What am I doing wrong?
