    Is megavideo gone too then?

    Megaupload song:

    Megaupload had a lot of perfectly legal content too. And what happens to people who had paid accounts?

    And learn about SOPA/PIPA, Americans and everyone need to fight back against this. Though this shows the power they have without that legislation.

    Some retaliation already, lol: http://rt.com/usa/news/anonymous-doj...rsal-sopa-235/
    Hackers have taken down the Justice Department website. Universal Music, Motion Picture Association of America also affected.

    Wow that's bad news

    As Bolt said, what about people who have legitimate paid accounts, will they lose all their content?

    This legislation is so shortsighted and badly drawn up, potentially it could have an real impact on every aspect of internet use, it's ridiculous and completely over the top and will end up hurting a lot of smaller legitimate sites, while the pirate sites will always find a way to operate anyway, I really hope it doesn't get passed!

    I don't normally condone hacking, but I can't say I'm sorry that they've struck the last couple of days!

    Default Mega Alternative?

    Gobbler is a really cool cloud too for backing up/transferring audio files. They're giving away free 5GB accounts & they're sort of like dropbox meets yousendit with organizations features. http://gobbler.com

    "Can you take these off?"
    "You take it off"
    "The other one" "No, really?"
    "See, i 'm taller then her"
    "Can I have my shoe back now?"
