Submission + - Filesonic removes ability to share files (

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."

This discussion was created for logged-in users only, but now has been archived. No new comments can be posted.
