What everyone here doesn't understand is the reason fileserve and wupload have stopped their service is simple. The government has stopped playing by the rules and is literally on a witch hunt. No matter how "legal" the sites are, the feds/hollywood are out for blood.... They will cross oceans, jurisdictions and even break laws such as the DMCA law that protects people like Fileserve, Wupload and yes.... MegaUpload.
They stopped their service because they know it's a lost battle. That they will be arrested without cause but only "Conspiracies" will be thrown at them, the feds will seize the domains and any other properties/belongings and put them in a local prison awaiting extradition... It's just not worth it. The battle is lost and there is nothing anyone can do about it. The USA is broke and Hollywood threw money at them to "take care" of this for them like as if they were ordering a hit. The USA gov in this case was the Hitman. When laws don't protect you anymore.. it's time to move on and say... "ok, you win....i'm out.... just don't put me in jail"
I feel mostly bad for the thousands of people that used the service legitimately and now can't. Was a good run.... the USA Gov / Hollywood say "The internet is not free.... it belongs to US now" Soon you will all be paying to use the internet... not via ISP but the internet itself..
