The U.S. Department of Justice on Thursday shuttered Megaupload, a popular file-sharing website, charging seven of its executives with engaging in an international criminal enterprise based on copyright infringement. Federal authorities called it one of the largest criminal copyright cases in U.S history. Megaupload, its movie streaming site Megavideo, and its various sister sites were down at the time of publication. Four of the seven execs charged are now in federal custody, including the site's founder Kim Dotcom, formerly Kim Schmitz.

Should social media sites be held accountable for terrorists' communications?
Yes -- They are providing a platform to facilitate murder and mayhem.
Yes -- Everything must be done to protect society from danger.
Maybe -- I'm not sure they have the technological capability to stop them.
Maybe -- I'm not convinced terrorists are using them for serious plotting.
No -- Authorities should monitor social networks to gather intelligence.
No -- Social networks are no different than phone carriers or mail services.
