All data to be erased
The FBI gain access to all of Megaupload’s user data as soon as this coming Thursday, February 2, according to a report from the New Zealand Herald , which cites a letter from the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia. The correspondence was sent to storage companies Carpathia Hosting and Cogent Communications, both of which host data for the file-sharing site, clarifying that US authorities now have the appropriate search warrants and are looking to gain rights to access the data. Authorities previously copied a portion of the data but are now looking to physically seize the files in question in their entirety.
The indictment the Justice Department obtained this month against MegaUpload, a popular online locker and file-sharing service, includes allegations that company executives personally uploaded and downloaded copyrighted content -- a familiar accusation in online piracy cases.
With Megaupload seized by the feds and everyone else even slightly involved seized by Anonymous , man-without-a-label Jonathan Coulton stepped into the breach and tweeted what we all only wish we were thinking :
