Re: The truth behind MegaUpload crackdown?
not sure how much that really adds up. AFAIK his biggest mistake was keeping a fraction of his servers in US territory, which was all they needed to go after him. in a world where most of the download sites are fully stashed in international loopholes, the nail that sticks up the farthest is always going to be hammered down first by the authorities.
also, kim was sharing all kinds of video media, wares and other stuff way before any potential 'music revenue sharing' model came along. about as far a cry as you can get from magnatune, pandora, etc who paid their dues from the outset.
having said that, i totally miss all those sites. watching full episodes of hundreds of TV shows and movies on the smartphone was beyond awesome...
