In this debate I will be arguing that Megaupload shouldn't have been taken down in America due to illegal files being removed and other sites being just as guilty. This is my first debate.

Okay, Since CON forfeitied, I will just post a short claim.

The government had the right to take down megaupload because it was violating piracy and copyright laws in the US. Because this law was broken, the government had the right to shut down megaupload. It is just like when someone murders someone else. A law was broken, so the police have the right to arrest the perpetrator.
