P.S. I just couldn't resist adding - here's how much money Megaupload made according to an article in Wired today, 23 January 2012:
"The money was mainly routed through US-based PayPal, which is how Megaupload collected subscriptions from users looking for premium accounts. This wasn't chump change; the government claims that the Megaupload PayPal account has "received in excess of $110,000,000 (over £70 million) from subscribers and other persons associated with Mega Conspiracy." Megaupload also made money through ads, using services like Google's AdSense ( until 2007) and the AdBrite network. Both are based in the US. AdBrite alone paid at least $840,000 (£540,000) to Megaupload."
