File Sharing Sites are Already Going Down Even Without SOPA

So literally hours ago Megaupload.com got busted for its file sharing reputation because they have apparently cost the media industry over 500 million dollars in pirated content. Also, The Pirate Bay announced a few days ago that they aren’t going to be supporting .torrent files any longer, but rather redirect with magnet links. SOPA did not go through yet, but coincidentally, this site gets attacked. SOPA definitely was not the end of the anti-piracy initiative.
