Megaupload data cost $9000 a day

We are still far from a resolution in the 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.
