Us Government: There's Child Pron on MegaUpload Servers Judge!

Fluffeh (1273756) writes | about 2 years ago

The Courts 0

Fluffeh writes "In the ongoing megaupload saga, Carpathia, the company that hosted MegaUpload, is in a tough pickle. The EFF wants the data to remain on the servers so that users can get legitimate data back, the MPAA doesn't want the servers back, because it will lead to piracy. MegaUpload wants to buy the servers to get all the data, but isn't allowed to as that would have the servers leaving the courts jurisdiction. The US Government won't pay Carpathia for the time that the servers are sitting idle and has a new song in its repertoire by annoucing yesterday that the servers “may contain child pornography,” which would render them "contraband" and limit Carpathia's options for dealing with them."
