Megaupload is in Hong Kong and they can still shut it down - US don't need no SOPA & SIPA crap!!!
What are affiliate programs?

it's funny that SOPA and PIPA has been dropped but at the same time all the file sharing sites are being eliminated or targeted one by one.....it's like SOPA had been passed. I wonder why the FBI are being this aggressive now and not before. Also how in hell are they shutting down servers located in other countries?.....very strange!!!!!

According to the indictment, Megaupload was using 525 servers in Virginia (not smart), receiving payments from ad companies and paying uploaders located in the USA.
It's not surprising Fileserve would drop their affiliate program to help protect itself.

I guess we'll have to find another to share sooner or later. The fact is that all these sites are illegal. Either they find a way to payoff these Hollywood bigshots (these mfs just cant get enough...b* want it all) or they are going down. The point is that you can't just make money from other people's stuff, bottom line. True, it seems that SOPA and PIPA are a way to invade privacy and censor but if you owned a film corp. you'd think this matter differently. It is a complex issue of rights where both sides stand on extreme opposites.
What I think is:
If filesharing sites make money from ads, why won't Universal Music do the same?
If 400 million plus clicks went to Lady Gaga's Bad Romance in Youtube, how much money would they make if they put it on free download with ads?
See the point?
What about Avatar?
How many have downloaded it? Millions. Billions would they have made out of ads.
The truth is they're not ready. This is a global revolution that threatens every record store and potentially every theater in the world.
These people are like dinosaurs now. They have to adapt or they will disappear. They have the money and I am sure they will do it. Greater Internet speeds will allow full hd streaming for free. Add a couple of short ads throughout the stream and you have your money.

MU and other storage sites need to be smarter by moving to Russia where anti-piracy doesn't take place (i think). I don't remember where piratebay moved to but atleast they found a safe base and still operating.

From reading that forum, Ricky guy said:
