Default The truth behind MegaUpload crackdown?

MegaUpload was about to introduce MegaBox worldwide which would have been a cloud based music store that allowed the artist to keep 90% of the revenue generated and also paid artist even for songs downloaded for free using MegaKey.

This makes a lot of sense to me. Because they went way to hard on the owner for simply hosting a site.

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...

the government are going to lose this case anyways. tons of procedural errors, not the least of which was admitting that they illegally wiretapped him.
