For such a shady guy like Kim Dotcom, MU was one of the most consistent and best hosts out there, you'd imagine he created Oron reading his background.

This is kind of a stretch considering the US will have to prove all this beyond a reasonable doubt:

Quote:
The indictment states that the conspirators conducted their illegal operation using a business model expressly designed to promote uploading of the most popular copyrighted works for many millions of users to download.

The indictment alleges that the site was structured to discourage the vast majority of its users from using Megaupload for long-term or personal storage by automatically deleting content that was not regularly downloaded.

The conspirators further allegedly offered a rewards program that would provide users with financial incentives to upload popular content and drive web traffic to the site, often through user-generated websites known as linking sites. The conspirators allegedly paid users whom they specifically knew uploaded infringing content and publicised their links to users throughout the world.

As alleged in the indictment, the conspirators failed to terminate accounts of users with known copyright infringement, selectively complied with their obligations to remove copyrighted materials from their servers and deliberately misrepresented to copyright holders that they had removed infringing content. For example, when notified by a rights holder that a file contained infringing content, the indictment alleges that the conspirators would disable only a single link to the file, deliberately and deceptively leaving the infringing content in place to make it seamlessly available to millions of users to access through any one of the many duplicate links available for that file.

The indictment charges the defendants with conspiring to launder money by paying users through the sites' uploader reward program and paying companies to host the infringing content.

And pretty much the entire California delegation is behind SOPA and Democrat Chris Dodd is now president of the MPAA. This isn't a one party issue.

Horrible day when MU was shut down. Hopefully it will be back up like the last posts stated. Once the Government starts shutting down streaming porn sites, then there will be a revolution. Hopefully something will trigger before that so the Government can step back and start minding their own business.
