Recently we wrote about how SOPA or no SOPA many file sharing sites were either being taken down or blocking US residents. The list was getting pretty long and unfortunately we can add a few more to the list.
This from our man in the field:
Now Filesonic won’t let you download links unless you share a personal password with downloaders. Here, look at this example link: http://www.filesonic.com/file/u2Wa0Br. This is getting ridiculous. Pretty much the only one left is mediafire now. I hope to god they don’t cave…..
Annnndddddd now FileServe is over…. http://www.fileserve.com/file/EbZCTpB/. I was expecting as much since they are owned by the same company. Also, this site croaked yesterday as well: http://uploadbox.com/
So the official list is:
MegaUpload – Closed.
Deleting multiple files. Closed affiliate program. Closed
FileJungle – (Owned by FileServe) Deleting multiple files. Testing out blocking some USA IP addresses.
(Owned by FileServe) Deleting multiple files. Testing out blocking some USA IP addresses. Closed
(Owned by Fileserve) No concrete news yet. Password only
VideoBB – Closed affiliate program.
Uploaded – Banned USA IP addresses.
FilePost – Started suspending accounts with infringing material (doing what Hotfile did)
VideoZer – Closed affiliate program.
4shared – Deleting multiple files.
Uploadbox – Closed
Enjoy your internet freedom!
