The feds are looking for an angle that lets them prosecute Megaupload on U.S. soil. And apparently the way they're trying to make it happen is by pulling rapper and producer Swizz Beatz (a.k.a. Mr. Alicia Keys) into the case, by claiming he was CEO of the company.
The feds shut down Megaupload today, and the RIAA is juiced. In a statement released after the DoJ killed Megaupload, the RIAA celebrated victory with a hearty diatribe villainizing the file-sharing site.
