Well then, it's like arresting the apartment owner for what the tenants were doing in there... drugs, murder, whatever.

They can't know everything their tenants are doing 24/7. Nor should they.

The owners of the apartment building is making money off rent. Just like megaupload was doing off the membership to pay for their servers and bandwidth.

What the FBI should have done is ask megaupload to take down the pirated files OR ELSE... and go after those who uploaded them in the first place, not megaupload.

It just sank in for me...

If they don't restore "file sharing links" I will have to completely redo my sites.
Makes me sad. **cry**

Some Filesonic users already experiencing files being deleted for so-called copyright infringement.

Rapidshare has a history of plethora of lawsuits but Rapidshare won against all in Germany.

Any suggestion on Crocko, Filejungle, Filesmonster, Oron, Filefactory, Rapidshare or Mediafire?

Crocko looks like a good alternative. However, who knows how long they will be available. Last thing I want to do is transfer everything, only to have them pull links down the next day or something. Have to wait and see how they respond to an email I just sent them. But thats looks like a very good substitute/alternative.

Wrong. I just found out from porn webmaster that "Oron will be shutting down Monday Jan 23 2012".

Don't tell me you didn't archive all your favorite porn?

Exactly!

Hide your copy of 1984 and Fahrenheit 451 - soon they shall be forbidden and their owners surely will go to jail!

My point would be where does this end.

That's the biggest problem.

Those that make a living from selling or distributing pirated material will find a way to do so, but what will it cost to those that never used any of those sites?


If I'm going to be labelled I'd rather be a Buccaneer.
Buccaneers, as other privateers, had a license from a country to attack ships and cities from enemy countries, so I guess some of the Internet pirates are really privateers.

I think it's awesome. One big step in fighting pirates and fighting against the people behind those Hosters who make excessive amounts of money through it.

I wonder if and when Rapidshare gets killed, that's the biggest and most used One Click Hoster.

All the crying from the pirates is funny though und then they start blabbering about 1984 and Fahrenheit 451 because they think stealing media is their god-given right
Idiots...

I think it's time for the arrival of the Virtual Jesus...so as to resurrect our sites of sharing.

Just my opinion, of course. But I think it falls in line with everyone's thoughts right now.

Disappointing,

It seems the concept of net neutrality may be on it's way out with all of this. The internet will soon have a gatekeeper and this gatekeeper will be the lawman for the corporate millionaire scumbags(RIAA MPAA etc) who want more money then they already have. Bittorrent and P2P sharing will live on through encrypted networks, but even TPB will go down eventually I'm sure, with SOPA and PIPA gone the pimps in congress and house will write up some other 1984 like legislation. I can only hope with the recent uproar about these two bills and the raised awareness from it that WE the people will take a real stand about this kind of stuff.

So yeah.


MU had 4 percent of the total traffic on the Internet, popularity doesn't equal legality.

Obviously, they don't need pipa and sopa. They win lawlessly. They never really need the laws. Recently, they just passed the law on discretion arrests of people, denying them right to defend themselves. What's this pipa and sopa anyway? A distraction from the real thing...
