Megaupload file hosting stopped

So here's a very recent news, about the Mega-sites, which have been seized.

For those who don't know what Mega-sites are?

Mega-sites are/were file-hosting services which provided  you the facility to download files, uploaded by others, which was beneficial to share files in a Large Number.

So exactly what happened wrong with them?

Recently These Mega-sites (like,, etc.) have been shut down because they were believed to be involved in copyright infringement.

This means that pirated material, that was not to be shared, like movies, games, music etc., could have been shared on their websites

Now these sites have been shown with a notice and their top leaders are under arrest and have been charged heavy fines.
