So you have no doubt heard about the insanity surrounding the shutting down of MegaUpload, particularly the wild story about how the file-sharing website's founder was arrested in high fashion. Well, this has all clearly spooked other file-sharing services, including FileSonic. If you go to its homepage, you're greeted by a message that reads: "All sharing functionality on FileSonic is now disabled. Our service can only be used to upload and retrieve files that you have uploaded personally." Not only that, but Uploaded.to is no longer available for use in the U.S.
Wow. Do you think anyone else will fold in light of the ongoing witch hunt? And could a major player like Mediafire go under?
Update: The FileSonic Facebook page has now disappeared. Props to our reader William Tran for the tip.
