28433321 story Filesonic Removes Ability To Share Files 412 Posted by samzenpus on Monday January 23, 2012 @12:00AM from the closing-shop dept. Ihmhi writes "In the wake of the Megaupload takedown, Filesonic has elected to take preventative measures against a similar fate. The front page and all files now carry 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.' Whether or not this will actually deter the U.S. government from taking action remains to be seen."
