Anonymous Shuts Down Corporate and Government Websites Worldwide … The Timing Couldn’t Be Worse
January 20, 2012
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
Anonymous has also shut down the main U.S. governmental copyright enforcers, including:
U.S. Copyright Office
Department of Justice
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.
