Megaupload is still fuming that Universal Music Group made repeated false copyright claims to YouTube about a video that major recording artists made in support of the service, which the major labels have branded "rogue" and have cited in their fight to pass the Stop Online Piracy Act. Megaupload is suing Universal and will devote its energy to fighting SOPA: '“We thank everyone for the massive support. Let’s join forces and fight for an Internet without censorship. Stand up and oppose new laws like SOPA and PIPA, which are being written this month in Washington,” says Mega CEO David Robb.'

    Megaupload needs to tug Universal’s pants right down and show its skidmarked tightie-whities to the world for all to see and  snicker at..

    See everybody? The DMCA has strong protections against false claims of copyright! Under penalty of perjury! Oh, we’ll just let it work itself out in the courts. Mleh.
