here’s the story of how the almighty government (Big Corporate) swooped down and busted Megaupload and its owner, Kim Dotcom, in a full on assault with SWAT, FBI, etc and all their ordinance as they swept in and had to break into Kim Dotcom’s “safe room” in order to get to him to make the arrest in New Zealand. This being the big bad “good guys” (again, Big Corporate) coming down hard on those awful internet copyright thieves like Megaupload.
“Less than 24 hours after the electronic equivalent of a sit-in, things got aggressive. Via a series of direct denial of service attacks, cyber-collective Anonymous — which has been referred to as a group of hacker-activists, or “hacktivists” — brought down the websites for the U.S. Department of Justice, Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), Universal Music, U.S. Copyright Office, and the FBI.”
– quote from The Snarkist post linked to above
That being a resounding volley, a *shake fist* response to the big bad “good guys” (guess who – Big Corporate) from those lowly, conniving, and downright troublemaking “hactivists”.
and I agree with The Snarkist… “this is hot,” she says, “this is fun,” say I!!!
