Filesonic has now stopped its services, you can only upload and download your own personal files…  Also  has closed its doors to US visitors.

The move is probably a response to the FBI crackdown on MegaUpload two days ago.

US visitors of currently get the following message.

“Not Available: Our service is currently unavailable in your country. Sorry about that.”

The site has yet to release an official statement on the “block.” Whether it’s permanent, and the alleged relation to the MegaUpload raids and arrests is unknown at this point.’s decision is just one of the many changes the major cyberlockers have made during the past days. More on that later.

As for filesonic we dont know how long this fear of the FBI is going to last, but thank you USA. Sopa hasn’t even passed yet its leaving footprints.
