So you have no doubt heard about the insanity surrounding the shutting down of MegaUpload, particularly the absolutely wild story about how the file-sharing website’s founder was arrested. Well, this has all clearly freaked out other file-sharing services online, including FileSonic. If you go to its homepage, you’re greeted by a message that reads that “All sharing functionality on FileSonic is now disabled. Our service can only be used to upload and retrieve files that you have uploaded personally.” Not only that, but Uploaded.to is no longer available for use in the U.S.
Wow. Do you think anyone else will fold in light of the ongoing witch hunt? And could a major player like Mediafire go under?
