Judge wants MegaUpload user data preserved for now

Lawyers for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which advocates for Internet users and tech companies, said it believes an independent entity should oversee a system whereby MegaUpload's users can retrieve legal content before it's too late. When the judge sounded skeptical that so much information could easily be handled in such a way, Julie Samuels, an EFF staff attorney, told the judge that she wasn't suggesting a solution would be easy as "flipping on a switch," but she implored him not to forget innocent third parties.
