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.

Well its been that way for a while. As a webmaster I have to be very careful about what I put up online. Take domain names for instance. Before registering a name you have to check the USPTO website to make sure there are no US trademarks on the name. Even though I live in Pakistan I have to check US trademarks to make sure I don't loose my domain name!
