We told you earlier that the FBI shutdown Megaupload and charged seven people with conspiracy to commit racketeering and criminal copyright infringement. Anonymous has come together to strike back quickly. Right now the websites of the Department of Justice, MPAA, RIAA and Universal Music Group are down. I’m not sure if there are more in the works but we are watching the Twitterverse for more.
I don’t know if they have tried going after the FBI’s website or not but none the less Anonymous is getting heard loud and clear. Anonymous also has said that more was coming. You can follow AnonOps Twitter account to see up to the minute reports from Anonymous.
Imagine if SOPA/PIPA were passed, more websites would be getting shut down and the internet would turn into a battlefield!
