Re: Megaupload Shut down by FBI
Ok question..in law school 1st thing we learn is that laws does not apply retroactively unless it benefits the defendant, so how can 7 people get arrested and charged with internet piracy as a criminal offence while piracy wasn't a crime before the activation of SOPA law?
Am quite unfamiliar with the "copyright infringement" laws in the US, but if it's already a crime then why arrest people only after SOPA? did SOPA turned the copyrights infringement from a civil crime to a criminal one? I know that am probably missing/forgetting something really simple that will clarify my questionings but i can't put my hand on it.
