FBI Shuts Down One of Largest File-Sharing Sites

Federal prosecutors in Virginia have shut down one of the world's largest file-sharing sites, Megaupload.com, and charged its founder and others with violating piracy laws -- a day after a 24-hour blackout of popular websites such as Wikipedia drew national attention to the issue. The indictment is among the largest criminal copyright cases ever brought by the United States, according to the FBI.
