RapidShare Reserved The Right to Take Legal Action Against MarkMonitor

RapidShare followed its competitor MegaUpload and responded to recent report from US Chamber of Commerce, which claimed that the company receives billions of hits annually, thus profiting off the hard work of the American creative industries and depriving the thousands of people of their jobs.


The cause for concern is reported to be the US Chamber of Commerce-funded study purporting to show that 3 largest cyberlockers receive total 20 billion visits annually, which somehow is treated as evidence of online piracy.

Anti-fraud company called MarkMonitor classified the three websites, including MegaUpload and RapidShare, under “digital piracy”. The reason for that was that despite the fact that they did offer takedown processes for illegal material, the action itself must have been initiated by the copyright holder.

Although users of RapidShare are notified that infringing content will immediately be blocked after being notified of them and deleted after a fortnight inspection, it doesn’t seem to matter to MarkMonitor. Instead, the firm calls RapidShare a “rogue site, profiting off the hard work of US creative industries.”

As you understand, RapidShare couldn’t take it easy, and hinted that legal action may be in the cards. It says that this defamation of RapidShare as a digital piracy service is absurd. Moreover, the company announced that it reserves the right to take legal action against MarkMonitor, as it positions itself as a legitimate service offering its users fast, simple and secure storage of large amounts of information on its servers.

The company points out that cyberlockers do not make copyrighted content “publicly available.” Instead, their business model is based on providing its customers with confidential access to files they upload to the servers. Once again, German courts have already ruled that any copyrighted content illegally made available to others is not the cyberlockers’ fault, but rather that of third parties.

Besides, RapidShare pointed out the hypocrisy of the anti-fraud company not classifying websites like YouTube under “digital piracy”, considering that much more copyrighted content likely appears on video-sharing service, which traffic dwarfs cyberlockers’.

Finally, RapidShare questions the report’s methodology, which suggests that the number of page visits indicates of the levels of infringement, as though they all were for illegal purposes.

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!!!!!!!
