    Megaupload shut down by the FBI

    This is terrifying. This company is located in New Zealand, not the US. It involves a New Zealand nation of German descent, not US citizens. The whole issue of piracy and copyright aside, isn't the FBI supposed to restrict its activities to US soil? Maybe there's an aspect of the situation I don't understand.

    Yeah, that is pretty odd. Maybe there are some US servers involved or something? If not, then we're probably gonna be in trouble with New Zealand. Not a good thing. They have wizards and hobbits over there!

    I found it ironic that the feds shut down Megaupload (I'm guessing some US servers, Winst) the day after SOPA and PIPA were put on the back burner and plenty of their legilative supporters starting backing out after the web black out.
