Megaupload was taken down for hosting pirated content, and knowing about that. How about that - uploaders upload encrypted content, and share the decryption key through another medium (skype, forums, facebook, etc.). That way the other medium is not infringing anything, and the hosting provider cannot possibly know what is being uploaded, and therefore can't be held responsible for it. That's just one of many ways to circumvent even the harshest laws, and it is another argument to my point that due to technology advancements, selling copyrighted materials is no longer a sustainable business model.
