The megasized file sharing site called MegaUpload just got taken down after being raided in multiple countries via a US led sting operation. Perhaps even more interesting was the cyber retaliation by "Anonymous."

No matter which side of the copywrite vs. file sharing arguement you are on, this a HUGE deal and the results will undoubtedly effect how the Internet is used in the future all over the world.

MegaUpload shuddown triggers online retaliation.

What ticks me off is when these hacker groups start hacking financial stuff. I mean, they act like they are going after big companies, but when a million consumers end up with their accounts hacked, it pisses me off.

Otherwise, let them fight it out.
