    I wonder what share of RapidShare's business is from users committing piracy? Hopefully they thought this through. lol

    You realize, that they didnt handcuffed them and busted them?

    Rapidshare is a swiss organization, DMCA has no meaning here, since we did not and i repeat WE DID NOT ACCEPT THAT CRAP.
    Also RS (RapidShare) is agains any kind of uploading pirated stuff and have a DMCA contact board.

    They clean their server often and dont host pirated files after they have been notified.

    RS, fileserve, megaupload, uploaded, mediafire - all these would not exist if it wasn't for the warez/pirate scene. Their business is completely reliant on it.

    "Also RS (RapidShare) is agains any kind of uploading pirated stuff"

    Sure *whistles*. Anyway, I hope RS come out alive - personally my favourite of the bunch.

    *Cough*, thats their official statement, sure the warez scene helped them and is still helping them alot, but i dont think that RS will ever bow and fail, because they are legally coverd.

    I support piracy. I have learnt SO much thanks to the hackers and crackers of pirate software/music/tv shows/films etc.

    There are a whole load of new file sharing websites that don;t require waiting like MF and RS.
