It’s been over a year since we published information about Uploaded, however in that year we have been quietly working to make things more difficult for this notorious cyberlocker.
Uploaded is loaded with copyright infringing content. It’s whole business model is based on the premise that there will be more uploads of copyright infringing content than DMCA notices issued to remove that content. It’s a giant game of risk and Uploaded do not care about limiting copyright infringement, they only need to make sure that as much content remains online as possible.
Uploaded.net use the company Cyando AG at Hauptstrasse 24, 8832 Wollerau, Switzerland as their front of operations. Protected by a shielding corporate structure they continue to operate with complete disregard of all laws pertaining to intellectual property.
Uploaded.net also distributes child exploitation content and bestiality content from it’s servers and seems to do very little to combat it. Most observers looking at Uploaded’s website would make the assumption that this is a reputable provider of cloud services, however the truth is they simply pay uploaders to upload copyright infringing content.
Remaining unchanged from a year ago is that Uploaded pays rewards to uploaders based on the sales of memberships referred by that uploader’s links.
This results in copyright infringing content being shared with abandon. Nobody is going to buy memberships for downloading from a file locker if all they can get is videos of people’s birthdays, weddings, dogs or cats. People pay for memberships to file lockers so they can have unrestricted access to terabytes of popular copyright infringing content.
In our 2012 piece, we found Microsoft Windows 7 was available on Uploaded. This year it’s Windows 8 as well.
Windows 7 is still available for those who want it.
Maybe you want Avid Pro Tools HD ? No problem, Uploaded has it despite numerous reports of copyright infringement sent to Uploaded about Avid software.
Uploaded could filter out this content, make it unavailable and delete it based upon title, but they don’t. Why would they ? It’s worth too much revenue to them to allow the infringement of Avid IP.
Adobe Lightroom is not spared either. Almost every title of current software is illegally shared on Uploaded.
You can download a HD version of American Pie from Uploaded.
We have found over 175 block buster movies on Uploaded today. Shared multiple times, generating huge profits for Uploaded.
Incest, Child Pornography and Bestiality
Uploaded is obviously not keeping illegal files from being shared, we wondered how much illegal content could be found in 60 seconds and here’s what we came up with.
Incest above and rape with a touch of child exploitation below.
Then there is a large amount of bestiality.
Then a little more child exploitation and rape
Uploaded are running a criminal conspiracy to infringe copyright and profit from the sharing of copyright infringing and illegal content.
Externally they try to appear like a reputable company, however scratch beneath the surface and you find a site that is no better than MegaUpload.com was when it was taken down. In fact Uploaded is worse, by an order of magnitude.
It is our stated aim to shut down Uploaded.net and that’s what we intend to do.
