MPAA fears Megaupload could reboot itself if servers are returned
The MPAA petitioned the court yesterday to block MegaUpload's efforts to purchase its servers back from the cash-strapped hosting company, Carpathia on fears that the file sharing service would restart off-shore.
Carpathia is losing about $9000 a day holding MegaUpload's data and has petitioned the court for financial relief. Specifically Carpathia has asked to be allowed to sell the servers back to MegaUpload—not just the 25 Petabytes of data, the physical servers themselves.
MPAA has counter-petitioned the court to halt this sale. The trade group is afraid that with the physical servers in hand, MegaUpload could move its operation off-shore—beyond US jurisdiction—and to restart operations.
