If you haven’t heard already, Megaupload was shut down earlier today by federal prosecutors for copyright infringements. But I don’t think that anyone could’ve anticipated what happened next…
An internet hacker group who go by the name Anonymous have retaliated by knocking some major US sites that include the Department of Justice, Universal Music Group, the Recording Industry Association of America, the Motion Picture Association of America and dozens other. Online war commence.
The Tweet that started it all:
Make sure you follow Anonymous’ twitter as they update the damage!
I am extremely excited and curious as how everyone, including the government, will react to these actions. Any guesses?
