Default Storage sites unnerved by Megaupload action



Filesonic has disabled its sharing functions, allowing users to access only their own files.

Uploaded.to has blocked US access to its site entirely, with a message saying "sorry about that".

Experts said that the sites were attempting to show that they were taking piracy seriously.

"If those websites are found to be communicating the works - ie facilitating sharing - then that's the key risk in terms of criminal liability," said Adam Rendle, a copyright lawyer from London-based law firm Taylor Wessing.

Filesonic, which is based in the UK and Hong Kong, has not released a statement about its move to block sharing.

However, customers visiting the website were greeted with a message stating simply: "All sharing functionality of Filesonic is now disabled. Our service can only be used to upload and retrieve files that you have uploaded personally."

Knee jerk reaction...I think we will see many more file sharing sites drug into court following suit with Megaupload.

What lead to his arrest was his extravagant lifestyle he lead. I saw the report on the weekend news as well
