Default Megaupload shot down by US governement
Anonymous, the 'hacker' group react

and Anonymous statement
January 19th, 2012

Popular file-sharing website gets shutdown by
U.S Justice - FBI and charged its founder with violating piracy laws. 
Four Megaupload members were also arrested. The FBI released a
press release on its website which you can view here:

We Anonymous are launching our largest attack ever on government
 and music industry sites. Lulz. 
The FBI didn't think they would get away with this did they?
 They should have expected us.

The following sites were taken down in
 response to the FBI shutting down

DOX of MPAA CEO Chris Dodd (original:


bunch of address of  people supporting SOPA
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not Forgive.
We do not Forget.
Expect Us.

The day after the SOPA/PIPPA blackout protest on the Internet.

an amusing fact : it seems that Lamar Smith, who filled SOPA proposing the law isn't properly crediting the photo he uses on his campaign site, and therefore could be taken down under the law he is proposing.

Thanks to the priorities of our ever-busy lawmakers, we now have "SOPA Math":

Illegally download Michael Jackson song = 5 years in jail;

Kill Michael Jackson = 4 years in jail.
