This 15 Sites Will Kinship With Megaupload

U.S. Justice Department is reportedly exploring the possibility of other sharing sites such violations committed Megaupload. It could be that other sites will share the same fate.

Anticipating this, several alternative sites have shut down their file sharing service. This includes FileServe and FileSonic.

In addition, the same reason, sites like block all internet protocol addresses (IP) based in the United States.

Indeed, as quoted by VentureBeat, is still difficult to estimate the share which sites would be closed.

"Megaupload case could set a bad precedent for the sharing site business," said Felix Wu, from the Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University.

Although there is no certainty, the following 15 sites that could potentially be sharing the next target:

A. BayFiles

Site based in Hong Kong was made by the two founders of The Pirate Bay. Two weeks ago, it announced it would discontinue the service because Megaupload case heats up.

This site was officially banned upload copyrighted content that is harmful to others. But on the other hand, its use to share pirated content is very easy.

2. DepositFiles

Site based in Cyprus can upload files up to 300MB for free without registration. If the list is a member, users can upload files up to 2GB for free too.

This site also offers membership "Gold" which allows users to download files quickly and without advertising. These premium services like Megaupload provided.

3. Divx Stage

The site is openly offered to pay 10 dollars for each upload of 1000 film. Users can upload files up to 1GB.

4. HulkShare

The site allows users to upload songs and let other people can listen to the player who provided exclusively by HulkShare

5. MediaFire

Texas-based site that allow users to upload files up to 200MB without having to register. MediaFire also widely used for illegal file sharing users, although banned by the administrator.

6. MegaShares

The site allows users to upload files up to 10GB and pay the appropriate user downloads the file number belongs to them.

Like multi level marketing, each measuring a minimum of 5MB of premium downloads will get one point. Points can be redeemed for cash if it reaches a certain amount.

7. NovaMov

The site is similar to Divx Stage. Users would be appreciated if it is able to upload movies of up to 2GB in size. Paid 10 dollars for each upload of 1000 film is also offered here.

8. OvFile

From the side view, this site seems fine. But its simplicity as "an online video storage service" to make this site could be a target of the investigation.

9. PutLocker

PutLocker allows users to upload files up to 1GB for free and can stream video with no time limit. On February 1 later on, this site will discontinue its affiliate program that gives cash prizes to the user.

10. RapidShare

Site based in Switzerland is one of the oldest sharing sites and are known globally. The site was once caught in legal problems, but still operating and serving millions of users.

On this site there is also no limit upload and download files, but to be able to download files quickly go through the registration process and paid.

11. SockShare

As PutLocker, SockShare will also terminate its affiliate program. In SockShare upload limit is 1GB (free) and 5GB (premium).

12. UpLoadHere

This site provides a service to upload files up to 2GB. To download the file over 1GB, users have to pay.

Membership costs U.S. $ 8 per month, or slightly less if paid at once for several months.

13. UpLoadKing

Much like UpLoadHere, except for a cheaper fee for premium service. Free users can only download files under 1GB and cannot be downloaded more than one file simultaneously.

14. WUpload

Site based in Hong Kong is expected is the second largest share after the site Megaupload. The free service can be used to download up to 2GB.

15. Zshare

Hong Kong-based site is purely free and get revenue from advertising. Limitation users can only upload and download files up to 100MB.
