Storage sites unnerved by Megaupload action

The arrest of Megaupload's founders has led to other file storage sites taking action in an apparent attempt to protect themselves from legal action.

Filesonic has disabled its sharing functions, allowing users to access only their own files.

Uploaded.to has blocked US access to its site entirely, with a message saying "sorry about that".

"If those websites are found to be communicating the works - ie facilitating sharing - then that's the key risk in terms of criminal liability," said Adam Rendle, a copyright lawyer from London-based law firm Taylor Wessing.

1. I don't know how to do it offhand

 

But wouldn't it be fairly easy to spoof uploaded.to to make them think you were in another country than the U.S.?

And ain't that kind of dismal? I'm thinking of ways to try to pretend I'm not American, in order to be more free.

When we have no freedom left, The Terrorists will no longer Hate Us For Our Freedoms.

Hey kids! Today's secret phrase is, "proxy server."
