SAN FRANCISCO — More cyberlockers are either ending affiliate programs or calling it quits in the U.S. altogether in wake of the Justice Department's bust of Megaupload.com.
Others have followed suit, including:
- X7.to, which shut down;
- VideoBB, VideoZer, FileJungle, UploadStation and FilePost all reportedly closed their affiliate and reward programs and are mass deleting accounts and files;
- Uploaded.to banned all U.S. IP addresses to its service to distance itself from U.S. jurisdiction, saying, "Our service is currently unavailable in your country. Sorry about that"; and,
- 4Shared, which canceled its affiliate program.
