What was the real purpose behind the Megaupload takedown? Would you believe — protecting the RIAA from an upstart competitor?
Of course you would.
UPDATE: Wow. Yeah, I thought it was Thursday.
I think your liver is punishing you. It’s Wednesday.
But that doesn’t change the meat of the story. Hollywood needs to go down. Big time.
It could be his liver, but if Stephen watched the STFU speech it could be a case of “lost time.”
Does this mean drunkblogging is suspended whilst your mind is rebuilt?
Boss Tweed is envious. Mussolini is smiling.
Color me skeptical. Apparently, some techies and programmers will believe anything — including wild conspiracy theories — as long as it means that they don’t have to believe that flagrant piracy was occurring at Megaupload that justified enforcement of IP rights. I’m skeptical of federal criminal laws on enumerated power doctrine and federalism grounds, but from what I’ve seen, the evidence in this case is pretty damning. Ironically, Megaupload would have received *greater* due process protections under Section 102 of SOPA in the face of the government’s invocation of its forfeiture powers, then it has under current law. As Instapundit likes to say: heh.
