Feds Are Going After Swizz Beatz to Take Down Megaupload
Swizz Beatz is being targeted as part of the Megaupload case, because feds are looking for a way to prosecute Megaupload in the States.
Swizz Beatz is now the main target of the U.S. federal government, because he may be the key to being able to prosecute Megaupload on U.S. soil.
Back January, Swizzy was labeled as the CEO of the company, but those allegations were later dropped when his lawyers stepped in and said he was not running the company nor can he be held accountable for any actions of that company.
But now, according to U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride, Swizz Beatz was repping Megaupload to it's capacity in front of the United States Trade Representative, meaning the company can be tried in the states.
Though Beatz is refusing to cooperate, he may not have a choice if he's served with papers. And if the allegations are true, it's puts a serious dent in the defense, which argues that Megaupload can't be prosecuted here because it's located outside of American jurisdiction.
