Cyberlockers: FileServe and Wupload no longer sharing
April 06th, 2012 - 01:30 am ET by J. G.
The end is surely nigh for FileServe and Wupload. The two file hosting services are no longer allowing file sharing.
Following the closure of MegaUpload in January and the recent declarations made by a manager at Paramount, the fight against cyberlockers is raging.
Alfred Perry, Vice-president of content protection at Paramount Pictures, has put Putlocker, Wupload, Depositfiles, FileServe and MediaFire in the same basket as MegaUpload. This is a signal that these sites will be next ones targeted by the MPAA (see our news).
Some of these sites have already taken measures to protect themselves by announcing the end of user rewards programs for the number of files put online. Alfred Perry’s intimidating threats seems to have had an effect on these services.
TorrentFreak has noticed that both FileServe and Wupload have removed hosted file sharing options from their services. These sites now only offer virtual private hard drive services to users.
Wupload has also placed the following message on their site: "All sharing has been disabled. Wupload is not a file sharing site. If you put a file online, only you will be able to download it and it can’t be shared with any other users".
