MegaUpload Responded to Anti-Piracy Propaganda

MegaUpload Responded to Anti-Piracy Propaganda

After online cyberlockers had come under verbal attack from entertainment industry, a few of the major players decided to fight back. For example, leading cyberlocker RapidShare has expressed its intent to respond to the propaganda, and now its competitor, MegaUpload, is doing just the same.


While there are at least 5 major players on the world stage, including Hotfile, 4Shared, and Mediafire, it is market leaders MegaUpload and RapidShare that found themselves at the sharp end of accusatory finger-pointing by entertainment industry. Following the RapidShare, MegaUpload is now countering “grotesquely overblown allegations” of copyright violation. It claimed that it provides connectivity between end users and storage capacity in the cloud, but it doesn’t provide any content. It’s just the same as ADSL providers and hard drive vendors. Therefore, MegaUpload is just a “dual-use tool” like a USB stick, which can be put to both non-violating and violating uses. As for working with illegal content, MegaUpload states that infringement of its conditions can’t be tolerated, as it abides by the DMCA and rapidly processes takedown requests.

MegaUpload is also planning to cooperate closely with copyright owners and their agents to give them direct takedown access. This will allow them to bypass the DMCA process. At the same time, cyberlocker notes that since it conforms to all legal requirements, no lawsuits over copyright infringement have been brought against the company. In addition, similar cases against its competitors have been largely unsuccessful.

Curiously enough, MegaUpload not only has over 100 million registered users and almost 50 million unique daily visitors, but also can boast employees at over 70% of the world’s Fortune 500 companies as account holders. Considering such stats, it’s unlikely that the actions of copyright infringers will be able to overshadow those of the millions of people using the service legally on a daily basis.

MegaUpload concluded that it has become the standard for hosting files too large to send via email, or, in other words, the most popular hard disk in the cloud. So if the MPAA and RIAA called MegaUpload a “rogue” website, then what about the world’s largest search engines like Google and Yahoo?

No avatarYeah for Rapidshare and MegaUpload and many others. They DO takedown all notified infringement, and YES, very rightly, it is (as it should be) up to the copyright holders to issue takedown notices.


Quite incidentally, neither upload service offer a search engine. OTHER SITES may infringe copyright by directing users to not yet taken down content. RapidShare and MegaUpload IMMEDIATELY remove material identified by the copyright owners as infirnging material.

Good luck to any potential legal action against COMPLETELY LEGAL OPERATIONS!!!!!!!

Sad they feel the need to bypass the DCMA process though! (which obviously takes longer....)
