Today is a bad day for fandom...Megaupload shut down  

Today is a bad day to wake up. Firstly, I'm getting more sick.  It started with a sore throat and now I think I have the flu and a mega headache starting.


Secondly, Megaupload is shutdown. There goes fandom.

I had planned to catch up on videos that I have not see of the boys. Now I cannot as one cannot download from Megaupload.

I cannot watch my Japanese dramas for this season and  it has YamaPi in it !!!

God, damn it!!!


Bloody Americans!! Those profit-oriented entertianment production companies. When they like it, they say must have freedom of speech and blah blah blah but when their profits are threaten , they start screaming illegal downloading and the need for stronger laws to stop it.


Now because of two stupid laws, it affets not just America but whole world. If they want to stop illegal downloading in their own country fine but from the way it is going with Megaupload, it seem the laws jurisdiction can go overseas in a very indirect way about things. In other words, the law does extend to overseas not just Amercian soil.


My day and weekend just went from bad to worst. God, damn it!!

I read this when you posted it and I wasn't going to say anything but it's still bothering me. You're blaming the Americans??? American laws are no secret. They could have put the servers anywhere in the world, but they put them here. That was their mistake ... or their arrogance. The FBI has no jurisdiction outside American borders. Blame the bravado and stupidity of the owners of Megaupload, not the citizens of the country where it happened.

I'm sorry if you think it is the citizens fault. That is not what I was trying to imply.

What I am saying that all this is because of corporate bottom line..the need to make profits at the expend of others.
As long it is not to their convenience, they will push government to come up with such bills.

It is not just in America, it happens everywhere.

Megaupload owners put the server in America was because they were not expecting what happen would happen in America.
Freedom of speech and etc...

But since this incident occur, it seems illegal downloading is just a cover excuse.
They there are now other charges at the owner such as illegal money or something like that.
Seem he is not really an upstanding citizen which is why all this was done.

I just feel that call an apple = an apple and not an orange = an apple.

Because right now it seems everything with Megaupload is just to get evidence on something else.
