    Perhaps of interest to anyone here who may use this service (I don't).

    50 million users may lose data, including family photos, says Megaupload lawyer

    People are already on the next thing. This is basically like when a drug cartel goes down and the next one pops up.

    I feel bad for the people being ripped off but their content is floating though the air, so this will never end.

    They couldn't even stop bootleg vhs back in the day...

    I feel bad for children in 3rd world countries...videogames and media content aren't cures to diseases.

    Yes I understand the hard work that goes into it, but that's to be expected. It's like becoming a reality star or singer and not wanting the fame that comes with it.

    And quite frankly when one person has it, you expect them to not share it? Start adding clauses to what the consumer can do with the product once it's in their possession, etc maybe

    I don't think there's a solution...and I could care less, the state of music and media currently is ridiculous anyway. Ke$ha rules the charts and Katherine Heigl is what I'm subjected to, so yes...I will steal it. It's crap.

    This is why you never rely on one service/method as a backup for your data. You need a backup for your backup for your backup. Especially, if your backup service is known to host not-so-legit content. icon_wink.gif

    If you want a reliable online backup, buy a fucking domain, buy hosting, and FTP your stuff to your own server...and don't share it except with those you trust.
