SOPA Strong Arm Enforcement Begins, Feds Shut Down

One day after Wednesday's massive SOPA protest which included the likes of Google, Wikipedia, and Facebook, the Feds branded their muscle to show who's boss and what they think about your supposed rights.

Federal prosecutors in Virginia have shut down one of the world's largest file-sharing sites,, and charged its founder and others with violating piracy laws -- a day after a 24-hour blackout of popular websites such as Wikipedia drew national attention to the issue.
The indictment is among the largest criminal copyright cases ever brought by the United States, according to the FBI.
