Anonymous Goes on Megaupload Revenge Spree: DoJ, RIAA, MPAA, and Universal Music All Offline
Anonymous has sure been quiet lately, but today's federal bust of Megaupload riled 'em up good: a retaliatory strike against DoJ.gov (and plenty of other foes) leaving them completely dead.
DownForEveryoneOrJustMe.com is reporting the department's site as universally nuked, and an Anonymous-affiliated Twitter account is boasting success. This is almost certainly the result of a quickly-assembled DDoS attack—and easily the widest in scope and ferocity we've seen in some time. If you had any doubts Anonymous is still a hacker wrecking ball, doubt no more.

The combination of the hacking nebula's SOPA animosity—they've been a vocal opponent of the bill since its inception—combined with today's sudden Megaupload news has made the group bubble over: hundreds upon hundreds of Anon operatives are in a plotting frenzy, chatting about which site will go down next. In Anon's eyes, the government and media interests are responsible for the undue destruction of Megaupload (and the arrest of four of its operators), so it'll be exactly those entities that're feeling the pain right now. Pretty much every company that makes movies, TV, or music, along with the entirety of the federal government, is in Anonymous' crosshairs.

Update: Anonymous says they've also knocked off the RIAA's site—looks down for us at the moment as well.

If it was a "massive worldwide piracy ring" why were they still living within the reach of the Feds? Doesn't make sense.

Oh please. I'll believe it when I see it outside of them making twitter claims. Even Westborough punked that group of no action nerds... not to mention their hilarious demand that Bernanke step down or face retaliation... which they never did.

On the same day Obama killed SOPA. Still though I agree with protecting piracy of intellectual property. To have some fun we recorded some of the covers we play in my band. Mostly just for promotion, to give to cities, corporation, party planners, clubs looking for gigs. But to be safe, and to do the right thing I paid the publishing companies that owned the rights to the songs. It was cheap like 80 bucks a song for 500 copies. The digital one is different i didn't do that because I want a physical disk to give people.

If the Feds already had the unilateral power to do this, why did they need SOPA/PIPA at all?

Makes you think.

I didn't follow the SOPA thing that much, so this may be wrong. I think SOPA was there to block websites that are based in other countries and add new anti piracy laws. They have always gone after pirating websites based in this country.

MegaUpload is based in New Zealand. They have a few servers in Virginia, but the feds actually bullied the kiwis into helping them take down the overseas servers and arrest people involved.

They use the exact same system for removing illegal content as YouTube does, and they have won every single court case against them.

The thing is, MegaUpload's CEO is a record producer himself (Grammy winner, made records for Busta Rhymes, Alicia Keyes, Beyonce DMX) who has been trying to start his own label using digital distribution (ie, MegaUpload) and has been luring artists away from the big established labels. Universal has been accused of doing some shady stuff in retaliation.

I'm not saying that the feds are acting as paid thugs for the recording industry here. I'm just saying.

Bull****. The feds basically work for corporations these days and not the people which is ass backwards.

In my line of work I use file share, SS and megaupload a lot to get huge files to clients so this will suck if all these sites go away.
