Okay, I know this isn't related to Anime/Japan/Manga News or some sort but this could be a warning to us.
Right now Many Filehosting websites are doing many changes that could affect Otaku-Streamers.
Not just Filehosting that doing the changes but many companies are also taking the "advantage" of the situation to take control of the "Copyright Act".
Ever since Megaupload has been taken down and the staff were arrested, all the other filehosts have been more cautious. They're massively deleting files and accounts, shutting down various features like hot linking, affiliate programs etc. They're even going as far as to banning the entire country from access their sites (namely, US).
Okay, How this will affect OS?
First of all, this will affect mostly the Uploaders on Otaku-Streamers because....
If those Filehosting website continue to do this, All Uploads on the Otaku-Streamers will keep delaying and delaying until We can't upload anymore.
There is also some Filehosting websites that only allows original uploaders
to download their own files
which they have discontinued their services.
The Last resort is by Torrent if those Filehosting Website keeps changing and trying to prevent their "shutdown".
Now how can this affect the users of OS?
Well I asked Jbluey opinion about it and He said "All Anime's/Drama's Uploads will be kept limited"
. What does this mean? It means that you'll expect some Animes or Drama will NOT
be uploaded here anymore. We are also trying to be cautious so that Otaku-Streamers will not be taken down by those "companines".
Right now Sopa and Pipa are postponed by the US Congress but this just doesn't stop anything at all.
For me, as an Uploader of Otaku-Streamers since 2009. I just hate what those Filehosting website are doing right now and also I really hate those SOPA/PIPA Bills since I'm 80% positive that other countries will try and copy those laws.
