AWESOME news !!! and AS author, i really HOPE ALL file-sharing website will be shut down soon and their founder will be considered as guilty to incentive to hacking, piracy and illegal downloading…

19 January 2012 is the first day of the end of file-hacking ! :) i’m happy !

all i want to say is : If you want something, buy it ! People works to make your pleasures (movies, softs, themes, files, etc….) so i read some comment like “protector” of this kind of websites… i do not agree !...

too many peoples take a small minute to click on a link to get the long and painful works of “workers”.... this is not a correct attitude when we can see how is hard to earn money actually….

thanks for your reading..

Interesting fact. Julius Bencko the Graphic designer got charged as well. It sais graphic designer but would it make any sense to charge someone in that position for that? I highly doubt it.

Even though I have had to send a bunch of DMCAs to Megaupload because they hosted my copyrighted products, I am still against Megupload’s closing. I mean.. come on! I know most people will say that new sites will pop-up; that’s true, but I’m not sure they’ll be as blazing fast as Megupload was.

There is many other way to transfer files otherwise than with file-sharing website… A FTP access is so easy to share…. and THAT is legal.

now, i think they KNEW all the content of the megaupload servers.. so they are guilty to allow the downloading of pirated files…

In the real life (i mean not online), this attitude bring you directly in prison! so why is so different online ?

No Government should take decisions like this. Internet must be free, as it started. I guess it is time for U.S. to stop taking decisions that involves all the world. This news spoiled my day, totally.
