At the present time, the following wording has been added to the top page.

(All FileSonic sharing features are disabled, FileSonic only allows you to upload files and recover files themselves uploaded)

As a result, links to hundreds, thousands of remaining FileSonic on the net have become invalid. Not only this shared function but also the incentive system for those who uploaded popular files with many downloads has been suspended for the service change point. The problem is payment of incentive to the user who was accumulated before this reward system ceased. Many users are worried about this point, but it is unknown whether they will be paid for now or will disappear.

Both FileSonic and RapidShareDMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) We are showing a posture to fight copyright infringement based on. For example, when uploading a file, we introduced a system that can check whether it is a copyright infringement file before the user publishes it, and users who repeatedly violate are blocked. However, there is also a doubt that this check function was really working.

There are many cases where large file sharing is required for business use, so we would like you to avoid only the flow that all storage invalidate the shared function.
