The movie industry isn’t resting on its laurels following the shutdown of Megaupload. It’s keen to see other “rogue” cyberlocker services targeted with criminal charges, with Paramount Studios’ VP for worldwide content protection Alfred Perry telling a US conference that “we continue to make criminal referrals”. He also gave CNET a list of the top five cyberlocker sites that Paramount sees as being rogue: Putlocker, Wupload, Depositfiles, FileServe and MediaFire – essentially the company’s hitlist for criminal charges. MediaFire has since responded by claiming it’s not a rogue site. “Unlike the other sites on Paramount’s list (including MegaUpload), MediaFire doesn’t artificially construct download limitations (speed, number of downloads, size, etc.) in order to drive subscriptions nor have we ever paid users to upload content… MediaFire cooperates fully with the MPAA, RIAA, and various other organizations who work to identify and prohibit the distribution of copyrighted content.”
