All the data on Megaupload – legal or illegal – could be erased as soon as Thursday, Feb. 2, the Associated Press reports.

The file storage website hires outside companies – Carpathia Hosting Inc. and Cogent Communications Group Inc – to store its users’ data.

Since Megaupload’s assets have been frozen, the service cannot pay the hosting companies to keep hosting the data. According to a letter by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia, filed in the case Friday, Jan 27, they could begin deleting data Thursday.

Megaupload attorney Ira Rothken says the company is doing what it can to try to keep the data from being deleted. “We’re cautiously optimistic at this point that because the United States, as well as Megaupload, should have a common desire to protect consumers, that this type of agreement will get done,” he said.

If the data is indeed erased, it will be very bad news for some 50 million people who’ve used Megaupload’s services, many of them legally.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) indicted seven people and two companies which ran Megaupload earlier in January. The site’s founder Kim Dotcom (a.k.a. Kim Schmitz) and six others are accused of making $175 and causing $500 million in copyright infringement.

If they’re found guilty in what the indictment calls a “Mega Conspiracy”, the accused could go to prison for a maximum of 20 years.

When Anon goes on a deletion spree after the fact it could get very interesting.

Sad how sites like these get shut down, yet illegal sites like pirate bay stay in operation. Guilty until proven guilty.

Yep. Sad how the guys at Mega upload are looking at 20+ years in prison, when rapists and murderers get *maybe* 5-10 years..

Shows you how fucked up our society is, and where the priorities lay.

Justice system is indeed fucked. Here in Michigan, if you murder someone, you are looking at maybe 6 months in jail. If you get caught with weed 5 years max.

The destruction of free thought and a halt to the spread of information is where the priorities lay. Think Anon will likely fight fire with fire. Wonder how many millions of files shall simply dissapear?

I'm personally just practicing. So pirates have fun. I will be very protected when I want to be because I will take the legal steps to do so. I very much doubt that piracy has put a major dent in Stephen King's bulging wallet. Or for that matter any other writer. It should be about the story anyway. I do see your point on music though. Famous musicians definitely don't make enough. :) God forbid a pirated song should turn others on to their music.
