If you're gonna do it, then so be it, but don't delude yourself into thinking that you're somehow empowering the artists who are getting screwed over by the label anyways. In fact, I'd even go as far as to hypothesize that this is actually part of the reason music is so cheap and manufactured today.

sure it hosted illegal files, but MU wasnt made for that, it was made and intended as a legal file sharing service, its certain users that started the illegal uploads, from what i seen, MU tried what it could for awhile to keep their servers clean, but the attempts got crushed by re uploads and more illegal uploaders.
the files that got uploaded to MU mightve been illegal, but the feds are out of control, seriouslyedit on 25-1-2012 by radiotracker350 because: (no reason given)

Another site in the cross hairs appears to be MegaUpload. Although a domain seizure was suggested, it now seems that another route has been taken, at least for now.

The law that I live by and which is holding us all bonded is called PRAECEPTAE CAELENIUM (tm). I did not read it in a book. You will not find it in any book. It was revealed to me by audio clairvoyance during the celebrations of the New Millennium in 2000. Summed up it basically means no sex no drugs and no violence. (1) From eternity to eternity, infinity to infinity, there be the one absolute. The One True God. Her names are many but she be the one true God there be no other God. The one judge there be no other judge. (2) La Deus Nostra, Notre Dame, Our Lady, The Holy Spirit, the cause the maker Cosmica. (3) Angelic powers of truth and beauty and righteousness be sure to be loving Her Holiness Above with all your mind and with all your heart and with all your strength. (4) So as to be pleasing to Her Holiness Above therefore do not be serving the masculine. (5) Do not be and do not allow masculinity into positions of government. (6) Honour and respect the virgin pureness of the christae. (7) Honour and respect the Immaculate Conception [parthenogenesis] reproductive process of the christae. (8) Do not fornicate or adulterate or sodomize. (9) Do not bully or torture or murder. (10) Do not lie. (11) Do not steal. (12) Do not be covetous. (13) Do not be jealous. Copyright NGL(c)2000.
He who trusts in violence to be his security cannot speak that he trusts in God to be his security.
However, if websites/host pay users to upload self curated media contents to their servers...NO ONE will upload to torrent anymore...eliminating piracy totally.
