Megaupload shut down by Feds

Why was it shut down?

The MPAA complained, estimated that most of the stuff on megaupload was illegal. No evidence required, no due process, no anything. A complaint was enough. An estimate. Ridiculous! Leaders of megaupload are being arrested already. Based on a complaint.

That’s exactly what all the SOPA/PIPA whistleblowers were pointing at.

Of course, we users will just move on to another service… But the MPAA won’t get any money from me anymore. No sir. The corrupt Hollywood mafia can suck it. Not a cent from me anymore. Not that it changes anything from the way it’s now. I see maybe 2-3 Hollywood movies per year and I’ve long since stopped buying their “productions”, which usually lack any and all creativity and innovation anyway. I hope they go under eventually. Anyone not capable of adapting to changing, new business models deserves to be crushed.

Oh that would kill jobs? Not my fault. Adapt or die. It’s called evolution. Survival of the fittest. The MPAA and RIAA are the same groups that whined about the VHS cassette and mp3 players. The MPAA and RIAA are old men on their death beds. I think it’s time to euthanize them.

    Here’s the resource I wonder about: theater owners. Almost all theaters will be mothballed. But the owners are mostly Main Street folk, not Wall Street or Hollywood.

    Perhaps a modern media business plan that incorporates these motivated entrepreneurs might just kick ass!

    Seriously, would you consider an occasional visit to a (scaled down) theater that served beer and pizza during the show? I love the idea, and I’m a troll!

    And the pingback you see is the classic strawman argument by the “concerned” minions of the fascists that want to rule our lives.

  4. HAHAHA! That’s hilarious! You want the Freedom of Speech, but only if its a one way street!

      Funny, if that was true, that comment wouldn’t have gone through.

      And I see freedom of speech as a one way street. It’s either there, or it’s not. There is no maybe, a bit, 50%. It’s either 100% or not at all. I’m personally sick of the weaseling around our so called “leaders” throw in when it comes to freedom of speech. Some stuff is okay, other stuff isn’t. Oh yeah, right. It’s already dead in the EU. The US will be next. Soon American “politicians” will argue about similar stuff as over here. Just wait, some over-paid, uneducated farthead on the Hill will get the idea that maybe outright restricting access to the net to “fight piracy” and “protect the children” might be a good idea. It’s already floating around in the EU. You won’t escape.

  5. Oh! So your just a Knight in Shining Armor who thinks Anonymous is perfectly legit and that internet crime is okay if you believe you stand for the people? Oh wait! You were the one defending MegaUpload! Because amidst the tons of illegal content they had on their site, some of it was legal. So in other words, they deserve a cookie while they do their time. đŸ˜‰

      Err…
      He never mentions Anonymous; you do.

      So, how did Righthaven cases work out, solid footing those, eh? Innocent until proven guilty; the public is not a court.
      Seriously, I only see him being angry about a HORRIBLY timed legal maneuver; which now has to prove cases. (They better have more than advertising revenue to point to ;P)
