Megaupload Obsoletes SOPA Proponent’s View

Oh, did I say that the government didn’t have the power to go after international copyright scofflaws? I meant to say that without broader authorization law enforcement actions would not overreach as much as they should.


Something’s busted here, and I don’t mean Kim Dotcom. The business had substantial legal uses, so it should have been taken down only after an adversary proceeding. The legit users are mad, and many of the other file locker services are scared and shutting down services so that there are few alternatives. Not the way to run a network economy.

take oh take this clue away
