Badongo shuts it’s doors

Badongo file sharing logoYet another longstanding illegal file locker has been shut down. Badongo was not the biggest locker but certainly still provided a large number of links to illegal content uploaded by users. The fact that yet another file locker has shut up shop could be a sign of the ever increasing pressure from content owners and legal bodies. It could also indicate that the business is getting much tougher. We see about three new file locker sites appear each week; most are comparatively small but they are numerous and all trying to get a slice of the pie. Conversely we see roughly similar numbers go offline each week but there has been a big increase in the number of companies entering the illegal file locker market following the legally forced closure of Megaupload. The huge profits announced by authorities which megaupload made no doubt further encouraged this illegal and detrimental trade in pirated music.
