Megaupload Trying to Avoid Court Procedures

For those of you that are still following this whole mess, the United States Attorney's office has filed a response to Kim Dotcom's most recent allegations. The government claims Megaupload is just trying to avoid court procedures.

Megaupload.com, the file-sharing website closed by the U.S., is trying to circumvent criminal procedure rules with claims including an accusation the government lied to get search warrants, prosecutors said. The website’s claims are unfounded, they said in a filing yesterday in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia. The U.S. accused Megaupload of generating more than $175 million in criminal proceeds from the exchange of pirated film, music, book and software files when it shut the site last year.
