MPAA Wants Megaupload Data Retained for Possible Future Lawsuits
We are still far from a resolution in the Megaupload.com legal battle. One of the things that has been contended is if customers of the service should be allowed access to their data since the service was shuttered when the founder was arrested. The MPAA wants courts to force the Virginia-based host of Megaupload called Carpathia to retain the 25 PB of Megaupload customer data on its servers.
The problem for Carpathia is that it claims maintaining the data cost at $9000 per day. Megaupload has been petitioning the courts to free up some of it seized funds allowed it to pay Carpathian and help consumers get their data back. The MPAA wants the data saved so we can potentially sue other organizations that helped Megaupload in the future. MPAA claims it does not intend to sue individual customers of Megaupload.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year.
