    Default SOPA/PIPA affects sharing sites

    Latest Update:

    MegaUpload - Closed.
    FileServe - Closing does not sell premium.
    FileJungle - Deleting files. Locked in the U.S..
    UploadStation - Locked in the U.S..
    FileSonic - the news is arbitrary (under FBI investigation).
    VideoBB - Closed! would disappear soon.
    Uploaded - Banned U.S. and the FBI went after the owners who are gone.
    FilePost - Deleting all material (so will leave executables, pdfs, txts)
    Videoz - closed and locked in the countries affiliated with the USA.
    4shared - Deleting files with copyright and waits in line at the FBI.
    MediaFire - Called to testify in the next 90 days and it will open doors pro FBI
    Org torrent - could vanish with everything within 30 days "he is under criminal investigation"
    Network Share mIRC - awaiting the decision of the case to continue or terminate Torrente everything.
    Koshiki - operating 100% Japan will not join the SOUP / PIPA
    Shienko Box - 100% working china / korea will not join the SOUP / PIPA
    ShareX BR - group UOL / BOL / iG say they will join the SOUP / PIPA

    Japan, China and Korea have a say NO to the FBI and that even if laws are passed in the USA will not have any value within the sovereignty of their countries!

    Link? And Megaupload wasn't closed due to SOPA/PIPA. SOPA and PIPA is not even a law yet...

    NOTICE

    Popular file-sharing website Megaupload shut down - CBS News

    but i don't think it's an act of SOPA or PIPA. they're not even approved by the legislation yet

    So even before it was passed as law, they are already whacking all such sites. Imagine if SOPA/PIPA was allowed thru... everyone will be sued and the whole internet shut down...

    In light of the current campaigns, the candidates in states will probably not want to associate themselves too positively with SOPA/PIPA etc.
