Megaupload Has Been Shut Down!

According to the Associated Press the worlds largest file-sharing sites, MegaUpload.com, has been shut down. As it stands right now, the website is completely inaccessible.

Federal prosecutors have accused the owners of Megaupload with violating piracy laws, possibly exceeding 500 million dollars in pirated content. Once the 13th most popular website in the world, operating as a free file hosting service for any kind of content, Megaupload.com is potentially gone forever.

Megaupload.com staff claims they were always on top of complaints about material that might have been pirated, but for now the service and the content stored within are gone. Currently, there are no answers available as to whether or not the legitimate content stored there will be released.

For users who had previously used Megaupload, some alternatives to the service are RapidShare, MediaFire, DropBox, or Box.net among others. This story is developing, so expect some additional information soon.
