Megaupload Founder In Need Of SOPA On a ROPA

Thursday the feds took action to shut down Megaupload.com, and cops in New Zealand arrested the founder of the file sharing site and alleged megaviolator of copyright laws.

In a dramatic, digital-age stand-off that played like a scene from a Hollywood thriller, dozens of New Zealand police backed by helicopters swarmed the barricaded mansion of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom to arrest him on Friday for Internet copyright theft.

Police had to cut their way through electronic locks to a safe room, where they discovered Dotcom - also known as Kim Schmitz - with a firearm.

Well, that was dramatic.

AoSHQ instant analysis: anyone who'd call himself "Dotcom" is clearly a massive tool who should get 10 years for that alone.

Related: why do we need SOPA again? Seems like existing laws are working fine here.
