Re: Megaupload Shut down by FBI
Yeah, the U.S. government went over and got them. Four of the seven arrested were taken in New Zealand, including the company's founder. Reported CEO of MegaUpload, rap producer Swizz Beatz (WTF?!) isn't facing any charges though.
It wasn't like the U.S. government just went over and did this on their own. It was a joint effort with authorities there as well. According to several reports, MegaUpload's multiple servers in Virginia helped make the case fall under our jurisdiction.
