Megaupload users to sue FBI

First federal prosecutors said that the file-sharing site Megaupload was responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage to the music and film industry. Users of the now defunct site are making allegations of their own now too — and they want to take the FBI to court. The US Federal Bureau of Investigation could go before a judge if critics of their shut down of the immensely popular Megaupload website have their wish. While authorities say the site infringed on copyright after copyright, patrons of the site who used the file locker to store personal files such as work documents and private research want authorities to be held accountable for their losses.
