bs0d3 writes "Not so long ago, a legal video was taken down by repetitive DMCA requests to YouTube. In response, Megaupload filed a lawsuit against Universal Music. This past week, Megaupload was raided by U.S. authorities and forced offline, which is costing Megaupload millions of dollars in damage. Today; while employees are in U.S. custody, Megaupload has mysteriously dropped their lawsuit against Universal Music."

    If you go for the boss they'll point to their boss, right up to the CEO who simply gave the vague order to profit.

    In the beginning was the plan, and then the specification.
    And the plan was without form, and the specification was void.
    And darkness was upon the faces of the programmers.

    And they spake unto their project leader, saying:
    "IT IS A CROCK OF SHIT, AND IT STINKETH."
    And the project leader went to the manager, and he spake unto him saying:
    "IT IS A CONTAINER OF EXCREMENT AND IT IS VERY STRONG,
    SUCH THAT NONE MAY ABIDE BEFORE IT."
    And the manager went unto the Director, and he spake unto him saying:
    "IT IS A VESSEL OF FERTILIZER, AND NONE MAY ABIDE ITS STRENGTH."
    And the director went unto the vice president, and he spake unto him saying:
    "IT CONTAINS THAT WHICH AIDS PLANT GROWTH AND IT IS VERY STRONG."
    And the vice president went unto the president, and he spake unto him saying:
    "IT PROMOTETH GROWTH, AND IT IS VERY POWERFUL."
    And the president went unto the board of directors,
    and he spake unto them saying:
    "THIS POWERFUL NEW PRODUCT WILL PROMOTE THE GROWTH OF THE COMPANY."
    And the corporate board of directors looked upon the product,
    and saw that it was good!
