I don't know if any of you have heard, but Megaupload has been closed down by the Feds. This is very upsetting news in my opinion because I know that many artists have uploaded their stuff to that website. I know there are a few issues with the site...but many Sims 3 creators stuff was on that site...

I think it is a horrible thing what the government is doing with this stupid SOPA and PIPA crap.

I am against this thing SO much it is not even funny.
I am just hoping no other sites like Mediafire, etc. will be shut down.

If you want to read more about Megaupload being shut down, here is what I read: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/entertainmentnewsbuzz/2012/01/file-sharing-megaupload-shut-down-for-piracy-by-feds.html


Let me know what you guys think about this, your views/opinions on Megaupload closing or the SOPA AND PIPA stuff.

Megaupload isn't much used by sims 3 modders. Mediafire is often used, depositfiles too. Megaupload is often used by warez sites.
Probably the RIAA and MPAA are behind this. Those ones have already closed many sites. Rapidshare got offline for a while too, but then got back.
SOPA and PIPA are bad stuff. They are a violation against the free internet and it means that you're pretty much shutted down. A simple youtube video of a child singing jingle bells would then result of shutting the place down, as it violates then the rules. You don't want to have that.

Well, I don't know about you, but I have a bunch of stuff in my game downloaded from Megaupload.
I am just so sick of this stuff it is unbelievable.

Annoyed They really do need to stop with this. Most of the company's backing up SOPA and PIPA are greedy Hollywood movie corporations that just can't stand to see their movies for free.

Wow, this could get really nasty! I just read the article about Megaupload and the Justice Departments behind SOPA and PIPA were HACKED! People aren't playing around and really really detest this action. I'm glad Obama's group is fighting against SOPA and PIPA, but this also can truly hurt his re-election possibilities. There are a LOT of big names that DO support SOPA and PIPA... I guess we have to just stay tuned and see where this all goes.

I do like the blackout that some major sites conducted and maybe more will get involved. You just can't pressure people into paying for something they can't afford. I think, my opinion, is that this will backfire and hurt the music and movie industry more than help their cause.

Wow. People are trying to make this country more communistic, like some other places. So much for freedom of speech.
My generation already have a lot to clean up as it is, and so does my brother and sister generations.

If I were everyone, I would back up your stuff now. I'm doing that for Mediafire.

My thoughts exactly Robin!! We need to start protecting our own stuff and not rely primarily on these upload sites to do this for us. I started some time ago just keeping a file of all my sims that have been completed and every now and then go and upload that into my external hard drive. Just feels safer.

Yeah. I want to have my own site so people can download from my local root folder. That will be a while though; I don't have a hosting server.

People worldwide are upset about this...

well, megaupload was not that commonly used, yet it was like the safest site that never randomly take down your files bec it may have a common letter with some fancy well know singer to just go and close something down without caring how legit ppl do and what they'll do is just dis-respectful

plus its not a smart move to make that law bec it will only work for the US, you know ppl can buy proxies as t hey want, they can use fake IPs and you cant trace them, and im sure that what will be more common these days thanks to this law

I agree with everyone of you. I am definitely going to backup all of the sims that I have uploaded to Mediafire because you never know what site they are going to close down next.

And I agree with you Sleepy, this country is just turning to crap...my generation and ones to follow are being leaned on to turn this place around.

I am not a big fan of Obama, but props to him for being against the SOPA and PIPA bills.
