In a potentially crushing blow to the FBI, a federal judge has informed the bureau that it lacks the jurisdiction to bring charges against Megaupload. The crux of the issue is that that the cyberlocker company was never formally served with criminal charges, and as a foreign company, can never be. That no one knew this going in is a bit perplexing.

The judge ended by saying that Megaupload is “kind of hanging out there.” Stay tuned for more hi-jinks. [Source TorrentFreak]
