Default Entertainment Ind Worked WITH Megaupload-Evidence

Entertainment Industry Was Eager to Work With Megaupload

Posted: 27 Mar 2012 05:16 AM PDT

“By all estimates, Megaupload.com is the largest and most active criminally operated website targeting creative content in the world,” said the MPAA in a statement issued immediately after Mega was shutdown in January.

As statements go, they don’t get much more harsh than that, so one might think that hostilities between Megaupload and the member companies of the MPAA are a long-standing thing.

But as we know, despite all the rhetoric the likes of the usually-aggressive Disney never sued the Hong Kong based file-hosting service, and instead opted to let the FBI do their work for them.

While this government-financed approach will have proven substantially cheaper than dragging Megaupload through civil court, some potentially embarrassing things would have inevitably come out in such a case – such as this selection of emails just obtained by TorrentFreak.

In an eyebrow-raising email penned by Disney attorney Gregg Pendola, the counsel contacts Megaupload not to threaten or sue the company, but to set up a deal to have Disney content posted on the Megavideo site.

My name is Gregg Pendola. I am Executive Counsel for The Walt Disney Company. Certain properties of The Walt Disney Company have content that they would like to post on your site.

However, we are uncomfortable with a couple of the provisions of your Terms of Use that we feel may jeopardize our rights in our content. We were hoping that you would be amenable to reviewing a 1-page agreement we have drafted that we would like to use in place of your Terms of Use.

Is there someone I can contact to discuss this? Or someone I can email the Agreement to for review?

Thanks. Gregg

In a later email, Joshua Carver from Warner’s Advanced Digital Services department made inquiries as to how the company could save time by using RSS “to upload our content all at once.”

Hello Megavideo,

My name is Joshua from the Warner Bros. Advanced Digital Services department.
I would like to know if your site can take a Media RSS feed for our syndications.
We would like to upload our content all at once instead of one video at a time.

Thank you for your time and funny content,

For Fox, the interest in Megaupload wasn’t necessarily aimed at spreading studio content, but to utilize Megaupload’s considerable reach by setting up an advertising deal. In this email former Senior Director Matt Barash touts FAN, the Fox Audience Network.

I’m reaching out to see if you have a few minutes to discuss the recently launched Fox Audience Network.

FAN is now up and running and fully operational, utilizing best of breed optimization technology to bring cutting edge relevancy to the ad network landscape.
We are scaling rapidly and seeking the right 3rd party publishers to add as partners to our portfolio.

So as we can see, as recently as November 2010 member companies of the MPAA were making contact with Megaupload and trying to do business with the company. According to the authorities the investigation into Megaupload took two years, meaning that these contacts and the start of a criminal investigation could have been just weeks apart.
