ATTENTION ▲: "Anonymous" Shuts Down Federal Websites, Universal Music + More
Hip-Hop Rapper/Producer Swizz Beatz is being sued by Universal Music Group because Megaupload.com, that he apparently is CEO to, which stores music, has cost "copyright holders more than $500 million in lost revenue from pirated films and other content.".
The Feds shut Megaupload down, but shortly after websites like Federal Gov, Universal Music Group, BMI, RIAA, Dept of Justice, have been shutdown by The "Anonymous" Group, and the list is continuing...
"1%, YOU HAVE LOST CONTROL OF THE SITUATION."
*Update #1: The FBI's website has now been shut down, Megaupload is back, and Warner Music Group is also down. This just got real, and to think, all this over ideas, expression, and succession.
*Update #2: Turns out Swizz Beatz is NOT the CEO of Megaupload...interesting.
