Paypal ban File sharing site

After megaupload, one of the largest file sharing site was taken down by the FBI . Many small companies traffic has increased drastically. RapidGator is one such company. Paypal has recently stopped transactions to them because they thought there are high risks in processing payments to the file sharing company. This is because many people asked for refunds when many of the file sharing site have stopped functioning normally.

It is sad that we will be loosing the concept of file sharing sites simply because they were misused to sell pirated content.

#raj_pol you do realise that Pirated content is not sold, it is shared.
to some extent (and in some cases) it is actually indirect sale; big files can not be uploaded from free account; can not be downloaded (max size limit). Now I do not see some one buying a premium account otherwise,
