Megaupload was an online file sharing company. The top one indeed. It allowed all users to upload files to the service and share them all around the world. Make them password protected, restrict them to yourself, etc. Everything you need about file sharing and uploading, you could have got it at MegaUpload. But while giving and providing satisfaction to the users, it was leading to an end.

On 19th January 2012, FBI shut down megaupload during an investigation into alleged copyright infringement. Megaupload had many things that were not supposed to be there which caused FBI to shut it down. The site’s founder Kim Dotcom and three others were arrested by the police in New Zealand at the request of US authorities.

Megaupload created different services to expand their company and get more profits out of it and also give the people more. MegaVideo, MegaPix, MegaLive and MegaBox were the other services by MegaUpload. All of them were successful and famous but now, the end has come. MegaUpload, the largest online file sharing company has come to a not so good end.

Also, the founder of MegaUpload, Kim Dotcom Schmitz was arrested with three others by the police at New Zealand at the request of US authorities. There were a total of 18 domains which were 'Mega' related which were also seized by the authorities. All of them were alleged into copyright infringement and that's why are banned and inaccessible.

Well, we all know that the shutting down of MegaUpload has raised a lot of question and the most popular question is: Which site is next? Maybe Rapidshare, maybe Mediafire or any other such sites. The question will be answered very soon. Let us see what will happen then.

For now, we would have to see how things go for MegaUpload. Whether MegaUpload can come back or it  was the last time we ever saw MegaUpload? It might come back but no confirmation on that. I am waiting to see what will happen next but I strongly think that US Government are taking copyright issues very seriously and may ban another handful of sites in the coming months.

What do you think about it? Let us know in the comments.
