    Rapidshare down

    As you may notice Rapidshare.com is down at the moment, and nobody knows yet when it will be back.



    On 19 January 2007, news broke that German collections agency GEMA had claimed to have won a temporary injunction against both RapidShare.de and RapidShare.com.

    The German collecting society GEMA has obtained from the District Court in Cologne temporary injunctions against the operator of the data exchange services RapidShare Webhosting + Webspace and www.rapidshare.com. The latter is said to have used copyright protected works of GEMA members in an unlawful fashion. The services make virtual storage space available into which users can upload content that is thereby made publicly available to other users. GEMA spokesman Hans-Herwig Geyer told heise online that the services should not be allowed to continue to operate in their present form. The collecting society is now demanding that the operator provide details on how many copyright protected works of GEMA members are currently stored on the said sites.

    According to GEMA, the service RapidShare Webhosting + Webspace in particular has at times boasted of making some 15 million files available to its users. The operator had however failed to obtain from GEMA a license for making copyright protected files available, the collecting society spokesman observed. To date RapidShare had claimed not to have any knowledge of the content uploaded by the users and of not being in a position to control the same, the spokesman continued. Through its injunctions the District Court in Cologne had now however made it clear to the company that the fact that it was the users and not the operator of the services that uploaded the content onto the sites did not, from a legal point of view, lessen the operator’s liability for copyright infringements that occurred within the context of the services, the spokesman added.

    Harald Heker, the chairman of the executive board of GEMA, believes the court's decisions will have repercussions on the way "Web 2.0 services" such as YouTube and MySpace will be treated in future. What the decisions according to Mr. Heker show is that "the mere circumstance of shifting acts of use to users and the purported inability of the operator to control content do not relieve the operator of a service from the copyright liability he/she/it possesses for the content made available for download from the operator's website(s)."
    You suck. Suck a little less and become a fan on Facebook.

    technically no, they [im sure] log what ip's enter the site at a certain time for statistics and of course they must log ip's aswell when files are downloaded toprevent the spam for premium accts of course...thus saying uploads are prolly not anonymous, but they have no control and can not look over them all

    Just download following & input the content into your windows hosts file. Fixed.

    Code:
    http://maghia.free.fr/hosts.txt
    If any problems happen, open cmd & input: ipconfig /flushdns

    Enjoy!

    Your windows hosts file is located @ C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc . Open it with notepad.
