MediaFire account suspended

Sorry folks, MediaFire have suspended my account, due to an incorrect copyright claim (HBO claiming that they own the copyright to Dr. Chair! Surely some mistake...). I hope to resolve it soon, if not, well, it's been fun...

Have you considered moving to DepositFiles or some other file hosting site?

Yes, I've been considering it, but I'm not sure it's worth the hassle really. I don't want to reup all the files only to have them blocked again. The recent crackdowns in filesharing have made me very nervous. Although the majority of my files were unsigned or forgotten bands, there was a small percentage that were out-of-print releases on fairly big labels, which was always a nagging worry in the back of my mind. If I do decide to reup the files, it won't be all of them.

I'm beginning to wonder if this area of music sharing has had its day, much like the old tape-trading scene.

Hmm, you too. I never much trusted Mediafire after the Megaupload thing myself. I actually got copyright bitching from uploading the Kristallnacht / Morke split with a KISS cover on it by Morke. That had me consider just quitting the whole thing.

So how did this turn out, anything new?
