    McLEAN, Va. — Federal prosecutors in Virginia say they have shut
    down one of the world’s largest Internet file-sharing sites,
    Megaupload.com, and charged its founder and others with violating
    piracy laws.

    An indictment accuses the company of costing copyright holders
    more than $500 million in lost revenue from pirated films and other
    content. The indictment was unsealed Thursday, one day after Web
    sites shut down in protest of two Congressional proposals intended to
    thwart the online piracy of copyrighted movies and TV programs.

    Megaupload.com has claimed it is diligent in responding to complaints about pirated material.

    The indictment says that at one point, Megaupload was the 13th most popular Web site in the world.
