Also these filelockers are being used for exchanging illegal pornography like bestiality and kiddie porn. LeaseWeb the hosting provider who hosts MegaUpload is also hosting oron.com and we found bestiality and kiddie porn on there and reported it to the Dutch police and little is done. It’s bitter that it takes American justice to take down an illegal operation in the Netherlands. Maybe this is because the Dutch entertainment industry is so tiny compared to the American one?
