Megaupload has been shutdown

* I will update this post regarding the file hostings


I was shocked this morning, right after woke up. It was like bomb had been dropped of sky. Megaupload has been shutdown by US prosecutors on Thursday, 19 January 2012. The founder and several company executives were charged with violating piracy laws. I don’t know for how long MU will be shutdown. Is it only for temporary or for good ? Will it happen to other file hosting too ? If yes, I think the world will be in silent mode and no use to have internet access. We will be back to 60’s or 70’s. Yesterday, I knew the English Wikipedia took part in a 24-hours shutdown in protest against  SOPA and PIPA.

I only hope the good news will come up soon.
