This is definitely a big deal that the government is now censoring the internet.  Piracy may be the main attention for now, then they may try to shut down any website where the main topic is drugs, and so on, eventually romhacking.net will be closed down, and maybe someday we may only be able to go on "government4u.com" (not a real site) for all of our internet needs.

If they can shut down megaupload, who's to say they can't shut down whatever they want.

To be fair, Megaupload was involved in some reeeeeaaaaaally shady shit.

And the FBI kept an eye on them for years before the raid.
Current Projects:
  • Nurvus: 10%
  • Princess Maker 2 Refine: 45%
  • ScriptTool: 25%
  • EditTool: 90%
I do the Twitter thing now: https://twitter.com/MistressSaeko (expect lots of game streaming announcements)

Yeah, it was just bad timing really. MU going down sucks, but it was going to happen sooner or later.

That's just caving in to governmental thinking.

Please. Look up Kim Dotcom. He was doing some shady as hell and outright illegal things. I've been waiting literally years for MU to get shut down.

Yeah, I looked him up.  Compared to what the government does, he's a saint.

You are absolutely right on some things here regarding megaup, IST.  I am simply willing to overlook some of the shenanigans of a few individuals in favor of curtailing the government from interfering with the breath of fresh air that is/was the internet.

I found another picture which contains bullshit.

Though you probably shouldn't look at it.

I really hate how people think MegaUpload shutting down had anything to do with Protect IP/SOPA/PIPA/ACTA/Any other bill they're trying to pass since last time I checked, cause it really doesn't.

Exactly!  Maybe the government doesn't have to be involved in evvvvverything.

It is the government's duty to protect the livelihoods of its citizens, but not at the expense of progress. It is also the government's duty to prosecute criminal activity, which overrides the duty to its citizens' livelihoods.

MU was apparently engaging in criminal activities; whether those allegations will be proven remains to be seen.

You are all missing the point here. The bull says "MU"
