    What do you think that will happen with the biggest sites like PornHub? Can be these huge porn sites closed as in the case of Megaupload?

    I can't be a MU in most of the cases, cos MU was charged for some other issues. However, other small timers will have big chances not to take his place, or maybe one of his own employee can become his successor, stamping his reputation.

    If those sites get close RedTube will become the #3 on Alexa ranking, if this site don't belong to his company LOL.

    Jokes aside I have an adult website (images) maybe I should go for videos too.

    Imho it is hard to imagine that due to the kingpin getting locked up on tax evasion charges, his whole empire will collapse...

    I do not see that happening...

    They just fined a european company for money laundering for the drug cartels, so they will probably give this guy the death penalty.

    I think he uses all that money to hire AK and SFL to go after filehost so he cannot pay his taxes

    I don't get why people take the risk not to pay taxes, if they got more money then they can ever spend. That absolutely don't make sense.
