A shockwave has rippled through the online file storage industry this week after  file-sharing giant MegaUpload was raided in New Zealand for various copyright conspiracy charges. Within the past 48-72 hours, several other sites have shut down completely or drastically changed the way they work, only allowing users to share files with themselves after logging into the site. This is a massive response to one incident and it remains to be seen how permanent these changes are, but one thing’s for sure: the Internet is going through some growing pains. The next year is going to be very exciting.
