The indictment

The indictment suggests that Megaupload hid its agenda behind allowing users to upload files of any type or size and profiting off of copyrighted materials:
Though the public-facing Megaupload.com website itself does not allow searches,it does list its “Top 100 files”, which includes motion picture trailers and software trials that are freely available on the Internet. The Top 100 list, however, does not actually portray the most popular downloads on Megaupload.com, which makes the website appear more legitimate and hides the popular copyright-infringing content that drives its revenue.

Here is the full 72 page indictment in all of its glory:
