The shutdown of Megaupload promoted by the FBI last week raises the discussion on the legality of sites that provide file sharing. Yesterday our site reported that FileSonic with other notable services of the type began to block the sharing feature – you have to login to download the files. The 4shared has not yet reached that point, but began cleaning the servers to avoid future problems.
In recent days the 4shared started deleting files and user accounts. The company has not made any statement on the subject, but it is reasonable to say that following the playbook of political correctness erasing third party content shared without permission to do so.
In addition to deleting the files, the site is also in the process to terminate the affiliate program that held, enabling local companies to sell the paid services 4shared charging the currency. For Brazil there is a list with nine companies authorized to sell on behalf of 4shared, according to the “page Resellers” on their site. Some have company name and all, as required by Brazilian law.
Brazil is among the countries that access the 4shared. According to Gizmodo Brazil, hits from the country account for 12.6% of total site traffic, hit number only by Indonesia. The statistics page 4Shared of speech that Brazil leads with 16.7 million accesses followed by Indonesia with 7.7 million accesses. However, the numbers do not seem to be updated.
I tried to contact the 4shared staff to comment on the matter. If the answer comes here can be sure that the article will be updated. In the meantime, I recommend to readers who use 4shared to share files that look similar service. To this end I usually resort to CloudApp, which offers a good client for Mac and good service on the web for those who use Windows.
