Media How Soon Until This One Goes Under?

Mygazines is a website that allows people to upload and share magazines for free. They apparently don’t have any sort of agreement with magazine publishers, which means that it’s like a Napster for magazines, which is kind of weird. They list the important points of the website:
Why Sign Up?
* read magazine articles from virtually any magazine
* collaborate articles into personal “mygazines”
* archive your favorite magazines in one place you can always come back to!
* rate & comment on articles and collaborated mygazines
* contribute your own magazines to the community
* all this and more - absolutely free!
But signup is down right now. This doesn’t sound like that bad of an idea, really; if Conde Nast didn’t sue them out of existence, they’d be able to use this format to actually make money from advertisers. But I’m positive that Conde Nast will sue them out of existence as soon as they find out about Mygazines, which should be any minute now.
