Megaupload actually hosted the files for a period of time on their servers, the data for torrents is stored on the users machines. So basically there
has never been copyrighted material on piratebay because the info was always stored on the users computers. Megaupload however actually stored
whatever was uploaded to it on their servers, so they may have inadvertently stored copyrighted material. Megaupload is not gone however you just
cannot use the domain name to locate it. You can still get to the site and their servers if you know the IP address.
(I am in no way condoning piracy, however people have used megaupload to upload legal data and they should at least know how they can go about getting
their data before the servers are wiped)
