Judge Defers Decision on Data from Megaupload.com

A U.S. judge deferred a decision on whether millions of gigabytes of data belonging to users of Megaupload.com should be preserved or the data-storage company that owns the servers where it’s housed can delete it. U.S. District Judge Liam O’Grady, at a hearing in Alexandria, Virginia, told federal prosecutors they have two weeks to work out an agreement with parties claiming an interest in the massive cache of data that became inaccessible when law enforcement agents shut down Megaupload in January.
