MegaUpload Asked American Government to Buy Its Servers

MegaUpload Asked American Government to Buy Its Servers

MegaUpload asked the court to preserve essential evidence hosted on its servers that had been seized more than three years ago. The information stored on the servers is at risk of being destroyed, and therefore the company asks the US authorities to buy the servers and transfer them to a safe facility at the government's cost.

In January 2012, the US government raided MegaUpload and Kim Dotcom. This resulted in seizure of 1,103 servers at the hosting facility in the US. Since early 2012, MegaUpload servers have been gathering dust at a Virginia warehouse, but now the company that owns the servers asked the court to allow it to wipe the seized data, because it bears looses of thousands of dollars per month in storage costs.

In respond, a former MegaUpload user asked the court to allow him to get back his files before they get wiped, and now MegaUpload itself also submitted a comment, asking the court to add it as an official response. The company points out that the information stored on the servers must be preserved, at least because it contains crucial evidence, which can be used in the criminal proceedings and the pending cases against the MPAA and RIAA. Previously, the Department of Justice allowed the data hosted in Europe to be destroyed, and if the same happens to the US servers, all evidence may disappear.

Thus far, the American government has only copied a very small percentage of the total MegaUpload data, which can be used to favor the Department of Justice’s case. So, MegaUpload asks the court to order the government to buy the servers and provide authorized parties with access to them. The company itself cannot afford to do the same because the US government seized all of its financial assets.
