From what I've read, it seems as though the MegaUpload folk knew what was happening on their site, allowed it to happen, and even participated in it. That's why they weren't afforded safe harbor under the DMCA and that's why the US government went after them.

Megaupload has a system in place where copyright holders can issue a takedown notice. It's similar to Youtube.

Is that the thing where the video goes private/goes away on Youtube? The copyright owner taking them down?

If they want to get people actually on their side then it would be wise to NOT take down websites/servers that people paid to have access for.

Video going private wouldnt get affected by copyright owners unless you post your video on the public sites like this forum lol.

But when you get flagged by YouTube's system on copyright infrigment, you get a warning where you can make dispute claim. If you dont, your video gets removed, muted or get random Ads placed on it.

 

Btw I got flagged yesterday , apparently my Chrono Trigger videos were the property of GoPotatoTV (another youtube partner channel) ~.~

Made a dispute and pm'd the owner of the channel, he removed the warnings *-* so my videos are safe now lawl.

Yes stop SOPA by taking down the internet itself.

I say that's a logic WIN! 



Man these guys are boring, they take down a site for 20 minutes and everybody spends days talking about how epic it was.

Didn't they say they were going to attack facebook on Guy Fawkes? How did that turn out?


No. That was just someone saying it under their guise. 



Isn't that essentially the only factor that identifies every anonymous member?

When a video gets taken down for copyright infringement it will say "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by [Insert Company here]"
When that happens, the person who uploaded that video usually deletes the video since its not viewable, so you will get a new message "This video has been deleted by the user"



I know some people in Anonymous supposedly. I think it was a pretty good statement taking down the FBI for like a few hours but hacking Youtube won't accomplish anything and will only hurt their cause.

Well lets see how many of those they can actually take down...I'm curious
