It is no different than shutting down local auto shops for repairing cars with non-oem equipment. Chevy does not endorse some Asian company making alternators and selling them via NAPA, or Pep-Boys, but it is not illegal in any way shape or form... Yet.
" The Register has an entirely different slant on Megaupload than " LOL you mean another content provider had the same outlook as the MPAA? Go figure.
So much fail:
"The study adjusted its figures to account for the Christmas sales rush."
"The research comes from the Carnegie Mellon University's Initiative for Digital Entertainment Analytics (IDEA), which tracked the number of Megaupoload users in 12 countries by using Google AdWords estimates.

"real level of security their communication enjoy" - Thats easy... NONE. Dont expect any privacy anymore. Our laws are interpreted in a twisted way that we dont even know about. I wouldnt doubt if the Constitution as we know it now has been "interpreted" down to nothing more than a fancy old-timy document. Awwww lookie here how cute, right to privacy, fair trials... awww weren't they so cute back in the day.

I think if these bastards fear for their lives, even just once, it will make them think twice before trying to railroad someone else this way in the future, or better yet, make them seek a new career.
When the Justice system fails time after time after time again, and we see pedophiles, and sexual assaults get let go and sometimes perpetrators rewarded for it, then I am glad they are doing what they are doing. Scare the living shit out of them. Make them think twice before they try this kind of stuff again.
Being a career politician can be a very nice living even if you lose. The better question is how much they spent out of what they raised. 42 million. Even if you only spent half, that's life changing money for some.
