Although both the industry and its observers somehow expected that some anti-piracy outfit will lay its eyes on new Mega hosting service, no-one expected it this soon. Anyway, StopFileLockers.com has already launched the first anti-Mega campaign by going after its finances.
The head of the outfit, Robert King, explained that the website’s campaign is to have the payment processing of all resellers of the new cyberlocker terminated. King also admitted that Mega’s resellers actually run the risk of having their PayPal accounts terminated, because none of them meet PayPal’s standards. As a result, 40% of resellers have already removed the opportunity to pay for Mega through PayPal. StopFileLockers.com explained it has been widely publicized that file-sharing websites need to obtain pre-approval in order to process payments with PayPal. The outfit admitted they couldn’t speak for PayPal, but they expect that the service was simply applying their standards fairly to all cyberlocker websites, including Mega and its resellers.
While many may think that it’s only a weak attempt to temper with Mega’s pocket, the facts are telling the opposite. You can recall the example of Hotfile, which is another popular cyberlocker who was forced to end its deal with PayPal after a long and painful campaign headed by the same StopFileLockers.com. At the moment, PayPal provided no comments on the subject.
