In the largest outpouring of celebrity magnanimity since Live AID, a bevy of A-Listers have come out in support of MegaUpload. Huh, apparently the file-sharing service is used for something other than providing me easy access to anime and porn.
MegaUpload has been under fire recently from the likes of the MPAA and the RIAA, who accuse the site of facilitating piracy. They’ve even gone so far as to dredge up Kim Dotcom’s—the founder of MU—previous conviction of “computer hacking” and blasting the company’s use of overseas servers.
However, the site does have many legitimate uses for content creators. Folks like P Diddy, Will.i.am, Alicia Keys, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Kanye West, Lil John, Mary J. Blidge, Jamie Foxx, and even Kim Kardashian—who was made famous by her “home video” that was shared extensively on MU—have spoken/sung in favor of the site in this mildly surreal video. [Geekosystem]
