Anonymous Shuts Down MPAA, RIAA, FBI, DOJ and Copyright Office

Anonymous launched one of the largest hacking attacks in history today.

Gizmodo reports that – in response to the Feds’ shutting down of the extremely popular file-sharing site MegaUpload – Anonymous has shut down the sites of the main corporate copyright enforcers, including:

Motion Picture Association of America
Recording Industry Association of America
Universal Music
EMI
Anonymous has also shut down the main U.S. governmental copyright enforcers, including:

U.S. Copyright Office
Department of Justice
FBI
Plus foreign agencies, including:

French copyright authority HADOPI
Given yesterday’s success in forcing so many congress members to back off of SOPA and PIPA, the timing could not be worse.
