So if Carpathia can be sued, then any one hurt by a gun, knife, etc should be able to sue the company that made it.

This entire incident is fail after fail.

Someone end the RIAA and MPAA will you?

If I were carpathia, I would claim a large power outtage, because of funding issues, that crashed the servers, thus resulting in the total loss of their megauploads archive.

If I were Carpathia, I would submit a motion to the Court requesting that the U.S. Attorney kiss my ass.

Eating the costs incurred for storing crucial data since Megaupload was taken down is, he implied, a cost of doing business.
From a business standpoint, the data would be deleted effective immediately as it serves no business purpose any longer.

If I was Carpathia, I would shutter my doors ASAP and start another service next door and avoid the head-ache and legal troubles and get off the sinking ship! Their coming for you! RUN!

Carpathia should SHUT UP if they know what's good for them. They know what they were doing and if they piss off the FBI they'll just end up getting sued and taken out for being part of the illegal mess.

Nope, you don't get it. RMS Carpathia's maiden voyage was 1903, 5 years before Titanic. Titanic's sister ships were the Olympia and Britannic. I know this because Wikipedia exists.

He has an inflated sense of self-worth, compounded by a lack of social grace and self-awareness. He behaves inappropriately in public, yet is completely ignorant to how pathetic he appears to others." - I found that on the Urban Dictionary site.

A better response would have been to calmly point out that I made a mistake in my post poking fun at your lack of knowledge, i.e. that Carpathia's maiden voyage was nearly 9 years prior to Titanic's maiden voyage, not 5 years.

Stuff like this is why i support violent revolution against the us govt ....if i was the host company, i would just delete the data, and then if they came for me i would kill what ever federal goons they send....and this would be legal since defending one self from those who seek to infringe on your rights is a god given right...

FOLKS... THIS IS THE FUTURE OF COMPUTING... "CLOUD" COMPUTING IS A GIANT FAIL AND MEGAUPLOAD'S LAWSUIT IS THE PRIME OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OF WHY "CLOUD" COMPUTING IS A JOKE...

I agree that cloud computing is a negative thing and that if it comes down to it most of us will just keep using older operating systems or flee to distributions of Linux that do not include it. The Megaupload ordeal is not an example though.. They were allowing its end users to upload copyrighted material which is stealing when you think about it. I don't know the exact percentage but I would bet that most of it's users weren't hosting legal material at all.

How are they suppose to check every file uploaded and see who is downloading them to know if it was copyrighted?

Again, if they can get it trouble for this then I should be able to go after companies that make guns, knifes or anything else I get attacked with if I ever do.

If you ever attack me, I'm going to file suit against FSM for bringing you into existence with His noodly appendage.
