The US government in its haste to support big businesses seized a bunch of uploading sites. They claim big business loses money due to uploading copyright material to servers. Tons of data is at risk of being deleted. Certainly some of that data is an illegal copy but much is not and folks who have used uploading sites in good faith are now threatened with losing their data with no due process. The sticking points are that MegaUpload’s funds have been seized as well and they cannot pay the bills for storage and users cannot access their own data to move it.
I can see a lot of lawsuits in the future and liability for taxpayers who may have to pay the bills. I can see people all over the world refusing to store any data on any server in US jurisdiction. This is yet another sign that the USA is going down the technological drain. The world does not need the bureaucracy of the US messing up IT.
