The US Justice Department said that Megaupload's two co-founders were arrested in Auckland, New Zealand along with two other employees of the business at the request of US officials. "This action is among the largest criminal copyright cases ever brought by the United States and directly targets the misuse of a public content storage and distribution site to commit and facilitate intellectual property crime," said a statement posted on its website. The charges included copyright infringement, conspiracies to commit racketeering, copyright infringement and money laundering. BBC 

Is this the beginning of the end for internet file sharing?

d@mn! no wonder I couldn't download one particular file this morning

File sharing ? I am putting my frequently used files to the Cloud

if you have a hotmail account you get 25GB to store your files (SkyDrive) and share them (I think the size limited to 100Mb per file)

Google gives 1 Gb of space; Dropbox, Box, Sugarsync gives 2Gb
