    Fileserve joins the club, now you are unable to download anything if you dont have the owner account.

    Now there promoting something called "Fastlinks"

    Source: Unable to link(rules)

    This is basically another way to charge users greedy basters

    What happens when filehosting sites are shut down...
    1. Panic spreads to all associated sites that are at risk.
    2. Uploaders finally wake up and realise that they need to password protect files and give fake file naming.
    3. Filehosting sites are full of files that authorities can't touch. If you don't know what something is you can't remove it.
    4. Piracy is still rampant and authorities are in a far worse situtation than before as they cannot determine where or how it's happening.
    End game.

    While i'm against any illegal activity called "hacking". It'd be a good idea to summon the best hackers around the world and shutdown "legal measures".

    I see how people are worried:
    How we solve this?
    Simple: we share accounts instead of files. That way, anyone can get files.

    no one controls the entire internet
    if some guy puts a law trough to shut down file hosters people will start using torrents...
    the us will realize that their efforts are just a waste of time
    as long as there is something that connects two pcs (or hard drives) sharing will continue

    All of this happening is quite exciting. :3
    I just wonder how the community will adapt to it.

    EDIT: Also title is slightly misleading. Dead implies that the site has been taken down.

    now Im really worried.... think of all the files that got lost in less than a week. Even if new file sharing sites emerges, it will takes YEARS to rebuild the internet.

    well, only Megauploads stuff is gone for good, all these other sites at least allow the owners to regain their data

    How many are going to retrieve their stuff that has been up there for who knows how long for community downloads? Many files in that situation are simply going to be lost.

    Not only years... Think, MU died, fileserver is dying, and now ACTA is trying to fuck us all, it will take another 50 years to rebuild the internet

    Or everyone just starts rebuilding the entire web on TOR networks, avoiding the law completely.

    @Pong20302000 Funny how FileDropper isn't even included there, and they serve a crapton of files/warez. And they're cheaper than any of those.
    Then again, they have no affiliate program.

    Im going to emu"something" to download EVERYTHING. I was going to wait till I could afford a new 1TB hard drive to download the complete NDS romset. But now I will start downloading it right know.

    sorry for hinting the website.... but, who the fuck cares? We're pretty much fucked anyway :(
