Agreed. Deleting user data, which unlike some people like to preach Megaupload did have a lot of legal data stored and some of them from big musicians as well, is going to open up a whole lot of hurt for the FBI, the DOJ and with any luck the entertainment stooges behind this.

Deleting data without any sort of due process? Never has there been a more blatant lawsuit case.

As I mentioned, this is like arresting someone, confiscating their gun, and melting it down. Guilty or innocent, the gun is destroyed. If Kim Dotcom pulls an OJ Simpson, he could sue the US Government for the value of the company, plus punitive damages which could be 100s of millions of US dollars.

I'm not sure if site users have standing to sue though. Beamer?

At least with DCMA, this kind of thing is still quite rare. Under SOPA/PIPA it would routine.
