Very surprised that no one in my Circles posted that Megaupload was down. I guess they are all out looking for alternatives. 4% of all Internet traffic and millions (even billions) of dead links.
One of world's largest file-sharing sites, Megaupload.com, shut down; company workers indicted
McLean, Va., USA

Thu Jan 19, 3:21 p.m. EST: +The Associated Press reports that federal prosecutors have shut down one of the world's largest file-sharing sites, Megaupload.com, and charged its founder and others with violating piracy laws.

The indictment accuses the company of costing copyright holders more than $500 million in lost revenue from pirated films and other content.

The indictment was unsealed today, one day after websites shut down in protest of SOPA and PIPA.
