How much time is left until they will take down Rapidshare , Mediafire , fileflyer , Zippy
and much more?
Megaupload wasn't taken down because they "had illegal content on their servers", but rather because:
1. Some of their servers were hosting in the US and other places where DMCA take down notices must be compliant with
2. Upon receiving DMCA take down requests, staff would only delete the link to the content, instead of the actual content hosted on their servers
3. At one point they were paying people to upload illegal content to Mega Upload
4. The owners themselves were knowingly using the site to download illegal content (Which on their knowledge should of been removed by them)
EDIT: Almost forgot 5. At one point they downloaded(stole) and stored about 30% of youtube user's content on their servers.
Assuming sites like rapidshare aren't ran by dumb shady people they will continue to stay online.
SOPA\ACTA\PIPA states that every file which has any legal copyrights and you as a user which is not part of the file(lets say its a movie , you had nothing to do with it)That isn't even a sentence...
its a crime.
