Is RapidShare restoring its reputation with rightsholders? Film industry body the MPAA has submitted a new list of websites it believes are “notorious” for illegal filesharing, and unlike its list from last year, RapidShare is nowhere to be seen. In that intervening year, the company has hired lobbyists to press its case in Washington. So who IS included? The torrent and P2P sites category includes The Pirate Bay, Rutracker,, IsoHunt, Demonoid,, Btjunkie and Xunlei. The latter, incidentally, is part-owned by Google. The MPAA also names and shames file-hosting and streaming sites (Megaupload, Putlocker, Wupload, Simdisk and VKontakte); linking sites (Video2K, Letmewatchthis, Movie2k, Seriesyonkis and 3000filmes); and newsgroups (Usenext). “The rogue overseas marketplaces highlighted in today’s filing are a direct threat to our community and the millions of hard-working Americans that rely on it for their livelihoods,” claims the body.
