The existence of huge amounts of copyrighted content on Megaupload’s servers is well known, but it’s also true that the storage site had plenty of users with legitimate files on there. So what happens to those now? There is confusion over when or if Megaupload’s servers will be wiped – a move that would be very controversial for those legal users. The US attorney has written to Megaupload notifying the company that it has concluded its search of the servers, and has turned them over to two storage hosting companies that are owed money by Megaupload. They can start wiping the servers from Thursday, and with its assets frozen, Megaupload can’t settle its bills to stop them. However, the company’s lawyer Ira Rothken is claiming that the server companies have “agreed to preserve consumer data for additional time of at least two weeks” to buy Megaupload time to get its finances in order.
