    holy **** i didnt realise megaporn was included, **** the FBI! i hope annonymous got some talibans and terrorist to attack fbi's hq :p

    i think they must shutdown every filehosting service now, because their main use is piracy if you do a little research, what about torrents? they can shutdown p2p networks too?

    If some of the accusations are true then of course somebody will have to go to prison but only time will tell if any of it is true.

    One thing to take note of is the huge hit in revenue the hosting providers are going to take. Colocated or leased servers bring in a ton of revenue. Not only is MU shut down but this action is also going to hurt a legitimate business.

    Nothing to do with the "people" when anonymous are openly supporting money laundering millionaires, this wasn't exactly someone's harmless hobby in their spare time.

    Surely rather than shutting copyright infringing money making sites down, it would be better to just let them get away with it for a while, then freeze all the assets.

    You must be high.

    Anon is a bunch of little jackasses with nothing better to do than try and seem important.

    Sadly, the news has just done that, make them look important and like they're something.

    More news from the front.

    Filesonic has disabled their sharing functions. That means you can only download what you have uploaded.

    Uploaded.to is no more available in USA.

    Cool lol

    America f**k yeah !!

    Wow why the hell did Filesonic do that? couldn't they just shut down US servers or use same approach as uploaded.to.

    Less business to/for/from america:) I hope they wake up.

    And thanks for sharing that:)

    Fileserve has done the same thing...removed its affiliate program and you can't download unless you uploaded it. Sorry to say but torrents are still the way to go even if you wish to share something to someone of the family.
