Grim news folks. Its just been reported by BBC News that Megaupload.com has been taken down by the US government. How is this pony related? Well its where Mentos and Spazz have always uploaded their encodes, which means our entire episode guide just went dark (outside of Mr. Back’s episode transcripts).
From the BBC:
The site’s founder and others have been charged with violating piracy laws.
Federal prosecutors have accused it of costing copyright holders more than $500m (£320m) in lost revenue. The firm says it was diligent in responding to complaints about pirated material.
Investigators denied a link to recent protests against proposed piracy laws, according to the Wall Street Journal.
On Wednesday, thousands of websites took part in a “blackout” to protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act (Sopa) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (Pipa).
More details to come.
