The Feds took down huge website Megaupload today

The S$%^ is hitting the fan right now.

I'm pretty sure this take down is in direct response to the blackout yesterday.  I'm sure they will be going after some other secondary sites like VideoBB and Dailymotion soon and in a few months I'm sure they will be going after Youtube as well.

Anon has taken vengeance and taken down a few sites

http://gizmodo.com/5877679/anonymous-kills-department-of-justice-site-in-megaupload-revenge-strike

If they really wanted to throw a wrench in the gears, they would take down irs.gov

Imagine the chaos that would cause. Millions of transactions put on hold, phones ringing off the hook.

It would be a MASSIVE disruption.

FFFFFfffffff. I love Megaupload.  Also, my girlfriend is even more of a supporter of these sites. She actually pays monthly subscriptions. For awhile she paid for megavideo, then switched over now to videobb. The description is determined by who she can find more links for, which subtly changes over time in favor of different groups. Might be divx, megaupload, videoweed, or novamov next!

Oh is that what we're doing now? OKAY

sidereel.com for television shows

google search for "project free tv" for some stuff

but the best movie site right now is:

http://watch-movies.ro/

Next month it'll be a different site, thats the beauty of these things.

Yeah I had a subscription on megavideo.  Putlocker seems to be the best new one right now.  The videos load really fast on there, sometimes even faster than they did on megavideo.

I would use videobb which is basically the new megavideo but their videos don't load that fast.  Maybe if I got a subscription they would.

I pretty much think of these sites like drug dealers.  Sure they are making way more money then they did if "intellectual property" didn't get in the way but that isn't their fault.  Same with drug dealers making a ton of money due to artificially high drug prices.

I am not sure about that because I read that multiple governments all over the world coordinated the take-down, arrests, and confiscation of millions of dollars in property. Sounds to me like they've been planning this for weeks at minimum. But who the fuck knows.....
