The indictment of Megaupload and its directors seem to mainly focus on
them having used megaupload to share a few copyrighted files between
themselves and on a few emails from users to the directors that
contains links to copyrighted material.
The rest of the charges (racketeering and money laundering) is layed on
top of these.
This could easily be an issue for TPB, most torrent sites and most people.
