I would agree. They've dotted every i and crossed every t here.
This will inevitably be followed by a prosecution of some sort and/or
there's also scope for Megaupload to sue the USG for restitution.
It'll be interesting to see how this pans out - especially wrt any
safe harbor provisions in the DMCA for providers (which do have a
provision for due diligence being exercised etc).
Probable cause for seizure should have been easy to establish - no
shortage of warez, cp etc on these free upload sites.
