megaupload shutdown!  




Like seriously, thanks to Stop Online Piracy Act (Sopa) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (Pipa), Megaupload just got shutdown with half my files!!!!!!  - sopa-is-now-dead

US Federal prosecutors have accused MU of costing copyright holders more than $500m (£320m) in lost revenue. BUT, the announcement came a day after the "blackout" to protest against Sopa and Pipa. (Source: bbc.co.uk/news)   *suspicious*

Most of my GACKT videos are hosted there not to mention Youkai Bemu and Runaway episodes!

Now I'm all freaked out about Mediafire - which if the same thing happens - my LJ and Fandom to the LARGER extent are basically dead!

Try and imagine a life not stalking KAT-TUN! - nearly impossible!

UPDATE 1: Update 21: - the URL that is floating around "megavideo.bz" is a scam site and will infect your computer. We advise against visiting this site. (Source:  neowin.net/news)

UPDATE 2: Sopa (dropped) & Pipa (suspended)! (Source: mashable)

It´s the worst! I don´t know what to say. The only thing u can do now is looking for several another fileserver.

I know but then the other fileservers may come under the same attack.

this is like the worse news fandom (Japanese) and otherwise can get!

I really hope it get's resolved and soon!

Well isn't this a great thing to wake up to. >.>

If these things continue and all sharing sites got shut down, hell will break loose. :/
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on January 19th, 2012 11:16 pm (UTC)
IKR!

Can you imagine seeing no more Tatchan or JunDa moments until they release a single and we buy the vids?!

*it's a nightmare*

We need to have backups of everything. We also need to have backup communities since I strongly suspect LiveJournal will be targeted. I see that Arashi community is also discussing this option.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on January 20th, 2012 12:42 am (UTC)
Yeah, LJ is definitely at risk as well... some communities are already asking members to be prepared to help them reupload things should they disappear since many communities used MU primarily because of larger file sizes plus the file life...

I guess fandoms have to come together and plan something >.<

so said :(

WHAT!! THE ACT PASSED! WTF!! i was positive it wasn't going to pass! T^T! all my files too! T^T!
and what suck is that other uploading sites don't last as long as megaupload and the files will get deleted if they remain untouch for a certain period of time! ;__; STUPID ACT!!!
hazarianhazarian on January 20th, 2012 12:36 am (UTC)
It did not pass yet, this is just what they can do right now with current laws.

This is not good news for anyone in fandom.
I wonder how all of us fangirls who are not in Japan going to be able to get to see our boys now.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on January 20th, 2012 02:42 am (UTC)
Well just die from worry and love sickness if we can't spy on KAT-TUN >.<

hopefully it's resolved soon....

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

files! files! I have to------- hope MF won't be the same but they'll probably shut it down soon!

what to do? ><"
hazarianhazarian on January 20th, 2012 02:32 am (UTC)
Wow, Megaupload is back as megavideo.bz!</p>

Never give up...

Gaaah!!! Well... I just hope mediafire doesn't get targetted either. As of now i was suspecting megaupload since its been banned in some countries ( including mine) prior to this >.< but i'm sure there'll be other alternatives soon enough. We can't allow some stupid act in a country miles away from japam to affect fandom >.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on January 20th, 2012 02:45 am (UTC)
IKR!

Just wants to ruin our fun!

Oh so you couldn't view MU?! >< so said, so many benefits of using MU...

larger file sharing space and the file sharing lifespan is much longer!

but yeah, #prayforMF to never get attacked!

imagine seeing no more JunDa moments >.< * no, I can't imagine*

so speechless....don`t know what to say! all of us know that fandom makes us extremely happy and inspired everyday....hope that other sites won`t shut down.
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on January 20th, 2012 12:20 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, you said it right.

without fandom something will be missing - not to mention we'll not get to talk as much as this >.<

Are you watching the 'lucky 7' drama?

I wanna watch this weekend :-)

this is really SUCK, and i totally agree with with you, it must be conspiracy
why they have shut down MU after that protest, and I heard rumor some sites will shut down as well, what should we do,, internet is dying rn T^T

kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on January 20th, 2012 12:22 pm (UTC)
whattt! more sites?!

any names?

Why must they act like this in today's technologically advanced age?!

those people obviously don't use the internet to know of it's importance!

Oh and beware of this "megavideo.bz" floating around as megaupload back on stream - it is a scam site and will infect your computer.

gensou_alice on January 20th, 2012 04:07 pm (UTC)
It sucks, right!?
But, actually, SOPA and PIPA had pretty much nothing to do with MU being shut down... They're not even passed yet and they were set to be vote on after MU shut down.... ._

Also, PREMIUM ACCOUNT PEOPLE. T_T
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on January 20th, 2012 05:56 pm (UTC)
legally they don't (sopa and pipa) but after all the online protest the site gets shutdown, "I still think they are *suspicious* " - somehow indirectly...

but it's good that the bill still has quite a bit of time before a decision is made to pass it or not.

but still in the mean time... it sucks :(
