Mega: Hypocrisy, Piracy and Porn

In a recently released report, focussing on the partnership between credit card companies and file lockers, Mega was named as one of the worst piracy sites in the world. In response, and showing the sheer arrogance of Kim Dotcom, Mega have decided to sue Netnames for defamation.

MEGA

We have been studying Mega since it first opened and we noticed piracy taking place on the site from the very beginning. Now 18 months on, the amount of piracy taking place on Mega is staggering, despite Mega not appearing to have pay per download program for uploaders.

Pirates monetise piracy taking place on Mega using ad networks that display an ad before redirecting users to pirated content. Such ad networks include adf.ly which displays an interstatial ad that cannot be bypassed before redirecting the user to the content being linked to.

Mega is a haven for piracy. Out of the top twenty sites (by number of links to Mega) most of them link to pirated content hosted on Mega.

Rapidgator: Uncontrolled Piracy

Rapidgator is one of the worst piracy sites on the planet. It’s owners directly profit from the theft of IP and encourage such theft through affiliations with piracy forums and the payment of uploaders. Rapidgator is part of a criminal conspiracy to distribute copyright infringing and illegal content and it’s owners deal in the proceeds of this crime every day.

Like almost every illegal file locker, Rapidgator pays uploaders based on the number of downloads their files receive or rewards them with a commission when someone seeking out pirate content joins the site. Below is a screenshot of their rewards page.

Keep2Share and FileBoom. More Illegal Pornography.

We have looked closely at Keep2Share and FileBoom, both file lockers run by the same persons. We have also examined the large amount of television and movie piracy on Keep2Share as well as the illegal pornography being shared on Keep2Share. We have even highlighted the extensive software piracy on Keep2Share

FileBoom me

Keep2Share lost their credit card merchant account due to the content that they hosted, however the owners of FileBoom and Keep2Share have learnt nothing by the experience. In the past 24 hours we have completely re-indexed both sites and have come across some disturbing content.

Membership to FileBoom can be purchased directly on the site with Visa or Mastercard. Membership of Keep2Share can be purchased through resellers using both Visa and Mastercard.

UltraMegaBit.com UploadTo.Us Television Piracy

We have explored the rampant piracy on UltraMegaBit, which has now changed identity to UploadTo.Us, several times on this blog. We have detailed the criminal exploits of Rudy Corella, the loss of merchant accounts and the change of name of the site.

UPLOADTO US

One thing that remains constant is the uncontrolled piracy that takes place on this site. Happy to receive traffic from dozens of piracy forums and blogs, UltraMegaBit / UploadTo.us profits from the theft of content.

In this blog entry we explore how UploadTo.Us is now processing credit card payments again and how the site shares copyright television shows to paying members. You can get access to as much pirated content as you want with your Visa or Mastercard.

Television Piracy

UltraMegaBit.com / UploadTo.Us is a hub for unmitigated television piracy. No sooner are DMCA notices issued to take down content, the content is re-uploaded and available again. The owners of this site are not being held accountable for this disregard of content rights holders.

Keep2Share: A haven of illegal pornography

We have featured Keep2Share on this blog several times recently. First we exposed the huge amount of pirated software and television shows on the site. Then as the site was losing access to payment processing we further explored the pirate software being made available on Keep2Share.

It is a normal state of affairs that where a file locker is heavily involved in piracy, it is also involved in the distribution of obscene and potentially illegal pornography. In this case Keep2Share is no exception.

We have found bestiality, rape and incest available on Keep2Share. We have found files that describe fathers and daughters having sex on web cam – could this be child pornography ? That is for the authorities to decide. We have merely captured the download pages of each file and present them here. You are warned not to download any of this content.

Oboom: Bestiality still being made available – Pay by Visa or Mastercard

OBoom is still selling a virtual mountain of extreme and sick pornography from it’s website. There is an endless supply of bestiality content made available.

Just yesterday we posted about the huge amount of extreme and potentially illegal content available on OBoom. Since then nothing has changed. In fact we’re finding more of it.

OBOOM com  keep your moments on file

OBoom is a site which needs to be shut down, it’s obviously out of control with huge amounts of extreme and potentially illegal content present on the site. There are no controls in place, anyone can upload anything and they get paid to do so. OBoom pays it’s uploaders as much as 60 Euros per 1000 download or 95% of each sale their download generates.
