What wikipedia & 4 chan did was a protest, Google us did it too to increase popularity to the cause.

A lot of valuable sci leaks was on Megaupload, as well as some of our archived, oldest post-game coverages :(

Plz, tell me if I am wrong : I am not a lawer but I want to understand

When I try to acces www.megaupload.com I see a NOTICE... 4 accusations are made :

-conspiracy to commit racketeering (18 U.S.C § 1962(d))

-conspiracy to commit copyright infringement (18 U.S.C. § 371)

-conspiracy to commit money laundering (18 U.S.C § 1957 (h))

-criminal copyright infringement (18 U.S.C. § 506)

I fell like this is very confusing, because from my point of view, alot of internet people think that Megaupload closed because of SOPA... but I think that these 4 acusations come from the RICO act, witch have been ''voted'' around 1970.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racketeer_Influenced_and_Corrupt_Organizations_Act

The first time I noticed Megaupload was charging money 4 premium acount (many years ago) i thought : ''wow, everytime I watch something here, Megaupload send money to Hollywood or who ever owns copyright on what I listen'' because not doing so would be ''illegal''.

So now I think megauplaod was keeping the money, and ''autoritis'' don't need SOPA to bring Megaupload in court / jail / pay fines (because laws about copyrights existed before 2012).

I don't understand what is going on with this censorship / treating ''hackers'' like global drugs dealer thing. I don't understand what is the difference betwen : ''conspiracy to commit copyright infringement'' and ''criminal copyright infringement''.

Maybe SOPA bring that ''against websites outside U.S. jurisdiction accused of enabling or facilitating copyright infringement''

If anybody can write what he/she understand/know about it, I would apreciate it because I don't like the confusion it spread ''all around''...



PS. I found this poster from 1906 :

It's not directly because of SOPA, but many think it's influenced by it. It's not uncommon to see the authorities jump on things vaguely related to new laws, just to prove a point. Otherwise they'd never bother.

Megaupload may have been a sacrificial lamb in order to create media attention about "criminal piracy, conspiracy, blah blah" and prove how SOPA is "necessary".
