    lol... they seriously just blew loads of cash on this 'pile'...

    Seriously I think the video is the reason they were taken out. Seems like they actually did get Kayne, Snoop and other artists to endorse them, imagine how mad that made the labels.

    Also this apparently happened right before the FBI seized their site:

    Federal prosecutors have accused it of costing copyright holders more than $500m (£320m) in lost revenue. The firm says it was diligent in responding to complaints about pirated material.

    It's probably to appease US Congress. All that stink is causing world-wide tension.

    Some of the commenter on Reddit made a good point - what's the difference between Megaupload and YouTube? Both have massive amounts of copyrighted content, but they both remove them when notified, which is all that the law requires.

    Plus Megaupload has been in operation for years anyway, why are they only acting now?

    • they need to set an example for sopa/pipa, even though the case ia in NZgeorgesIII1/18
      because there is a high degree of ripped full movies and music, you tube does not have thatGminor2/18
      it is a quantity thing arguablyGminor3/18
      There is tons of copyrighted music on YouTube. So no real difference.ukit24/18
      and they are explicitly aiding copyright infringement rather than a video sharing serviceGminor5/18
      you can't download full albums from youtubeGminor6/18
      full quality flac straight from a disc ... oh i got it from youtube... can't happenGminor7/18
      Sure but there is nothing in the law that makes that distinctionukit28/18
      the explicitly aiding copyright infringement part is definitely in the law. youtube provides a video service not a file sharing one.Gminor9/18
      can't download any full length movies straight from youtube like megavideo and meguploadGminor10/18
      whats tricky about the situation to me is not if what they are doing is illegal its that the gov can just shut it down with no due processGminor11/18
      ...process. and i'm not saying they are doing something illegal its open to debateGminor12/18
      It's all in the eye of the beholder. Believe me music and movie industry would argue that YouTube is facilitating copyright infringement - and they have, in court.ukit213/18
      and they have made that argument in court. They view streaming as just as bad as downloading, and they are both crimes.ukit214/18
      illegal under copyright laws. The reason YouTube (and prior to today, Megaupload) are able to exist is because they remove copyrighted content when requested.ukit215/18
      copyrighted content when requested. It's called "safe harbor" provision of the DMCA.ukit216/18
      i think its the role in distribution part thats the real issueGminor17/18
      you could also stream on Megaupload using their Megavideo site.ernexbcn18/18
