"Since January, when the U.S. Department of Justice filed criminal copyright charges against MegaUpload, one of the world's most popular cyberlocker services, the private firm that hosted MegaUpload's servers has preserved user data on its own dime. Jay Prabhu, the lawyer representing the U.S. Attorney's office, said Carpathia's problems were not caused by the government. His message to the court was that if the cost of doing business with MegaUpload has gone up, Carpathia's added expenses shouldn't be thrust onto taxpayers." [editor's note: Oddly enough, I've seen no stories about Prabhu returning his paychecks to the US Treasury on the premise that it's not the taxpayers' job to finance his megalomania - TLK] (04/14/12)
