Megaupload.com, the enormous file-sharing site, has 25 million gigabytes of digital files stored after the government seized most of its assets and shut down the site in January. The cache is roughly equivalent to half the Library of Congress. On Friday, the federal government, the Motion Picture Association of America, and three other groups were ordered to negotiate what should be done by a U.S. District Court in Virgina. Megaupload's eccentric founder and majority owner, Kim Dotcom, is currently still in New Zealand appealing against extradition to the U.S.
