So. Megaupload.

It's been brutally murdered by the FBI. Soo, guess that's pretty nasty, yeah. Also, Anonymous got pretty angry. A variety of government sites(including the FBI's) have been DDoS'd into near death. Most were "occasionally available". Some are back up again, but there's still a few down. So I guess Anonymous is a lot more powerful than some people give them credit for.

SOPA hasn't passed yet, as far as I know. And I doubt they'll murder other stuff quite yet. I think killing Megaupload was more to inspire fear on file sharers so that they feel more pressured to secure their sites well.

...and because they refused to take down a high majority of their illegal content that was uploaded.

I mean like if the people in charge decided to remove a lot of the child pornography/rape+murder vids/stage 2 copyrighted material then I am pretty sure it wouldn't have gotten hit as bad.

But they kind of left everything on there, and the gov' didn't take to kindly to it.
