The threats keeps coming

We now see where the real power is. After the WH said they wouldn't support it Hollywood shot back big time. I may want the current occupant of the WH out. What we have here is Blackmail pure and simple. I know this won't happen but would be nice if the Justice Dept (I know what justice) would do a full rectal exam of the whole entertainment industry. A man can dream can't he.

DOJ arrests 7 for infringement

»online.wsj.com/article_email/SB1···yWj.html

Seven people have been charged with online piracy crimes in an indictment unsealed in northern Virginia. Four of those suspects are already in custody, authorities said.

The four were arrested in New Zealand. Federal agents and other law enforcement agencies simultaneously moved to search bank records and server farms in multiple locations around the globe, authorities said. The charges include conspiracy to commit racketeering and criminal copyright infringement.

According to the indictment, megaupload is responsible for at least $500 million in losses for the owners of the copyrights in question.

The indictment calls the company "a worldwide criminal organization whose members engaged in criminal copyright infringement and money laundering on a massive scale.''

Investigators estimate that megaupload's piracy business has earned them more than $175 million, according to the indictment.

I wonder why DOJ site is crawling like a snail right now. Is Anonymous or another group giving them hell over this?

This illustrates that sopa and pipa are not needed, since they already have laws to protect ip.
