Six U.S. film studios have filed a $175 million lawsuit against Megaupload for earnings it is alleged to have earned from distributing copyrighted works. Twentieth Century Fox Film, Disney Enterprises, Paramount Pictures, Universal City Studios Prods., Columbia Pictures Industries and Warner Bros. Entertainment are part of the lawsuit, although it remains to be seen how successful they’ll be in getting money, given that the US Government shut down in 2012. [Source: Variety]
