Semi-Daily, Bunches of fun!

Government acting like SOPA is already passed. Oh, And the Internet war.

This morning  The U.S. Government arrested the owners  of, and shut down  “Megaupload.com” One of the worlds largest filesharing sites on the grounds of criminally violating  United states copyright laws.   Now, Here’s the kicker, The website was Completely shutdown, without any due process, or trial. Now, since nobody else seems to be saying it, they always responded to files that were illegally uploaded. Even, in some cases being over zealous with their files deletions.

Now, don’t get me wrong, if they did it, they did it and they should be Dealt with accordingly.  But  the authority’s had no right to shut the site down without due process.  Also,  How did they get the  chat logs?  Now, Correct me if I’m wrong but don’t the police need permission to retrieve chat logs?

Plus, Megaupload Provided hosting for many legitimate files. For instance, The podcast for the site was hosted on megaupload.  That wasn’t in violation of a copywrite law but, yet, I still lost my hosting capabilities.  Megaupload was probably engaging in illicit activities. But the way the site was taken down, (Foreign servers as well I believe) with no warning is the essence of the SOPA laws.  It’s just a small taste of whats to come if that bill passes.

Also, in retaliation for shutting down MegaUpload, The Hacker group Anonymous Hacked the DoJ, MIAA, MPAA, recordlabel EMI, French copyright authority HADOPI, The  US Copyright Office, Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Site, And Universal Music’s Main website. All of them are, as of this post, Totally FUBARed. Over 5,600 DoSers(?) at once.

The Internet war is heating up.  Hold on to your hats people.

Yours Faithfully until the internet dies,

  1. DoS is Denial of Service Which means you flood certain ports to shut a site down

  2. Also, Google is actively censoring stuff. Sending censored sites to the bottom of the search, etc.
