    Is this the beginning of the end ?

    If they close mediafire.com we are fucked, just like all out other "sister" websites : pirate-punk.net, quebecunderground.net and punksandskins.com

    If something like that happens, we would have to use other file hosting websites (that will probably get closed too) OR make a torrent tracker (it would cost a lot of money)

    The future of the internet isn't bright...

    I just hope mediafire.com won't be the next one to go

    But after reading many articles, it seems that the reason megaupload got closed and not other file hosting services is because
    1) they were not taking sanctions against users who repeadly violate copyrights
    2) they were giving money to uploaders who get a lot of downloads on their files
    3) they were helping piracy websites to build search engines that would allow to search through all megaupload files

    Mediafire isn't doing anything of this.

    But if the new laws passes we don't know what could happen

    Megaupload shutting down was the owners own fault, bad business decisions it seems.
    I wouldn't worry about mediafire.

    also it was announced today that SOPA and PIPA have been put on temporary hold.

    I guess they've realized the bill was so vague that they are going to rewrite it.
