Electronic Frontier Foundation Wants To Help You Get Your Files Back

After the FBI shut down Megaupload, millions of people were locked out of files they had uploaded to the service. The Electronic Frontier Foundation is calling bullshit on this, and along with Carpathia, MegaUpload’s hosting service, they’ve started MegaRetrieval.com, a new site meant to call attention and serve those affected.

There’s not much to the site right now, aside from providing a mission statement and an email address for Megaupload refugees to air their grievances. According to Forbes, they’re not so much trying to take action in the short term as they are gathering info to see if there’s a valid class-action lawsuit to be pursued. But it’s the thought that counts, ya know? [MegaRetrieval via Forbes]
