    The files that website linked to are hosted on Megaupload and Rapidshare, both of which no longer exist, so their is no file to download.

    A handful of other file sharing sites were shut down this year, do you guys this is due to some legal trouble or just some coincidence?

    I think its probably due to these sharing sites mainly hosting pirated material and ignoring DMCA requests, more legit services like Dropbox for example have never had any problems.

    I know Zippyshare closed down, they were already blocking certain countries such as the UK from accessing their site, so I suspect that probably was due to legal pressure.
