Filesonic Close File-Sharing Service

Apparently swept up by the US Government shutdown of Megaupload is worrying some similar sites. Before being swept up similar cases such as Megaupload, Filesonic, Monday (23/1) close their file-sharing service. The closure was done on his own initiative and without prior notice.

Filesonic has not yet issued a statement formally on this subject. On their website, contains only a brief notification that the user can only upload files which is personal data on sites like save your cloud-based. On the front page of the site, writing "All sharing functionality on FileSonic is now disable. Out service can only be used to upload and retrieve files that you have uploaded personally".

During this, Filesonic it is one of the top sites that provide the facilities for their users to do the Exchange files that are suspected to contain content that is not legal. Not yet known how the fate of the previous data of the users who make use of the site.

Filesonic prefer the safe path, bearing in mind the case of Megaupload to dragging and capture their leader, even though it is not an American citizen.

Such as Filesonic, uploaded to the site also follow similar. They shut down its services to users based in the United States.

Does file-sharing websites like Rapidshare, MediaFire, Hotfile, and other similar sites will follow Filesonic? Or they have own reaction? We just look at the development of the next.
