It took at sevearl law enforcement authorities around the world to make this happen, as MegaUpload’s servers have been taken down. Four people have also been arrested in New Zealand.

The investigation has revealed that MegaUpload generated more than $175 million in profits and caused “more than half a billion dollars in harm to copyright owners.”

It’s not clear at this point whether Kim Schmitz, who has recently been calling himself Kim Dotcom, is amongst those arrested. Schmitz used to live in Germany, but relocated to New Zealand a few years ago. Also unclear is whether the FBI will charge Alicia Keys’ husband Kasseem Dean a.k.a.
