Now Megaupload is no more in US.The Justice Department’s shutdown of the popular file-sharing site Mega­upload.com reverberated across the Internet on Friday, asking a question for  major Web companies which has millions of users of sites like it. 


      federal authorities said Megaupload.com was part of an international criminal ring, the practice of providing digital “lockers” so people can store and share their photos, movies, songs and the rest of their digital lives is very common. Sites such as Facebook, Dropbox, YouTube and YouSendIt can be used to swap both legitimate and pirated content.Federal prosecutors said the firm paid users to upload illegal movies and music and tried to hide the practice.
  Whatever the reasons are, this incident is making a serious doubt among the famous and popular internet companies about their existence.
