The War for the Internet Has Begun

In case you've been caught unawares as the (intentionally secret and covert) attempts to censor and control the internet via SOPA, PIPA, and ACTA legislation pass through the House and Senate, here is one of its unfortunate casualities:  New Zealand's giant file-storage site, MegaUpload has been targeted by the U.S. and shut down... apparently without adhering to proper legal procedures.

ACTA Censorship: Say Goodbye to the Internet as We Know It

If the Anti-Copyright Trade Agreement (ACTA) is implemented, the internet as we know it will be gone.  Say goodbye to Youtube and any other website that post videos and other intellectual property (whether formally copyrighted or not).  Say goodbye to Facebook pages, blogs, and forums which upload and share information freely across the internet.  Say goodbye to the Gathering Spot and all the PEERS websites, because it will be impossible to comply with the new law by removing all the outlawed material.
