Quote :
One of the world's largest file-sharing sites was shut down Thursday, and its founder and several company executives were charged with violating piracy laws, federal prosecutors said.

An indictment accuses Megaupload.com of costing copyright holders more than $500 million in lost revenue from pirated films and other content. The indictment was unsealed one day after websites including Wikipedia and Craigslist shut down in protest of two congressional proposals intended to thwart online piracy.


The Justice Department said in a statement said that Kim Dotcom, formerly known as Kim Schmitz, and three others were arrested Thursday in New Zealand at the request of U.S. officials. Two other defendants are at large.

What are your thoughts on megaupload being shut down?

I can see why they were charged as such. Megaupload and several other sites are hosts of a lot of pirated material. But they also have regulations to removed reported material that falls under copyright protection. Download links go dead all the time. They are probably doing this because they are too many people uploading copyrighted material and to make and example of them...
