    How come the FBi go for megauploads and not rapidshare or other file share sites.

    Am I missing something ?

    I read somewhere that several other file sharing sites are currently under investigation and in at least one case the owner of the site is missing so no arrest can be made. Maybe someone could confirm this as I'm not sure if I remember correctly :)

    Megabox was an attempt to appear legit.

    They're trying to do an Al Capone on him.
    It's not the copyrite violations that will hold them
    but the money laundering and racketeering.

    Do you not have to be charged on each individual case
    of copy breach? That's like taking someone to court and
    saying well he robbed this bank so he must of robbed all of them.
