FileSonic Shuts Down All File Sharing

Chris | InformationLiberation

Visitors to the massive file sharing site FileSonic.com are being greeted with the following message:
"All sharing functionality on FileSonic is now disabled. Our service can only be used to upload and retrieve files that you have uploaded personally."
It appears the site can only be used now as a personal cloud storage service. No longer can users upload and share files with their friends, which is no doubt the main usage of the site. This news will be absolutely devastating to their millions of users, many of whom make a living uploading files and profiting from their distribution.

This all comes on the heels of the US government's due-process-free take down of Megaupload.com, the world's largest file sharing site.

Just yesterday, the file sharing website Uploaded.to closed their site to all US users.

These events are sure to send shock-waves throughout the internet, these file sharing websites have been exploding in popularity due to their more private nature, with torrents the user's IP is displayed for all to see, but with file lockers only the website itself tracks who is downloading each file, making the threat of being sued by a copyright troll less likely.

Of course, the government and the rent-seeking copyright industry cannot allow such market innovations to take place, so rather than adapt and create new business models, they're using government force to shut these entrepreneurs down with antiquated, irrelevant copyright laws.

Bullshit. All you need to do is give your logon and password to your friends, and you share the same access and share all the same files.
