LXer: The Death of File Sharing

Published at LXer:

The problem is this: Megaupload was accused of violating copyright through its file-sharing technology. This permits users to upload their own content and permit other users into their space. If anything that one person uploads is of uncertain copyright status it could be anything, really sharing it would then seem to amount to a crime. Which raises the question: Is every site that makes file sharing possible in danger?

Absolutely they are in danger. Most of the other file sharing sites have already hit the panic button and deleted nearly all their files.

SOPA didn't really need to pass, because it seems they have enough power to take down sites anyway.

This is not only the death of file sharing, but the beginning of the end of the free internet. There will only be increased censorship and control from now on.
