Urgent news!!!! A BLACK DAY FOR blogs

Although music blogs may still continue.. finding a file server to host on may prove to be the most difficult part of any post...

It appears that after Megauploads's shutdown, FEAR has gripped the File hosting services community.
They're falling like dominos
At last report.. FILESONIC has closed it's doors to file sharing..
If you live in the U.S.A. UPLOADED.TO has shut it's doors

There are unconfirmed rumors that three more services will be following suit..

I read somewhere someone said "the wild west days of the internet are over"

It's happened before..

After a few more hours....Fileserve has now closed its doors too..

It's over.. folks....

FileJungle has now blocked USA  IP addresses, and they're deleting huge swaths of accounts

and here is a pastebin summary by an 'Insider" who chose to remain anonymous...
Apparently the exact state of this crackdown is a bit hush-hush..

  • 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

  • Apparently this is *not* information that they want the public to know, nor is it that , for instance, it is no longer possible to delete files, or turn off sharing at 4shared .. and maybe others too..
    Because they had it turned on as default, some backups I made from my last reinstall, were set to be shared.. now I can neither delete them or turn off sharing..
    Well, it's fixed now

    I'm also duplicating this continuing update at http://cassettecoverartlib.blogspot.com/
