RapidShare Releases Anti-Piracy Manifesto, Now Allows Account Deletion Literally “Without Proof Of Infringement”
Ever since the takedown of MegaUpload, other cyberlockers have been a little antsy. If it can happen to the biggest player in the game, it can probably happen to whoever steps up to fill that pair of shoes. FileSonic, for instance, stopped allowing file-sharing at all, and BTJunkie -- a torrent site -- went whole-hog and completely shut down. RapidShare, another big player in the cyberlocker game, is trying to stay alive and has recently released an anti-piracy manifesto, detailing the extreme lengths to which they are going to completely avoid piracy. Besides taking anti-piracy far more seriously than any other cyberlocker to date, RapidShare's manifesto explains these measures as "responsible practices" and encourages all other cyberlockers to do the same.
