Last year adult industry businessman Robert King embarked on a mission to make waves in the file-sharing market by shutting down, harassing, interfering and otherwise meddling in the operations of hundreds of file-hosting sites. After successes, failures and the collection of hundreds of enemies along the way, King says that his StopFileLockers campaign has run out of money and support. Barring a financial miracle, the operation will shut down on Friday.
An anti-piracy group with the stated aim of shutting down file-hosting services by strangling their finances has wasted no time in going after Kim Dotcom’s new baby. Robert King of StopFileLockers says that his outfit has started a campaign to have the payment processor accounts of Mega resellers terminated. King, who is affiliated with the adult industry, says that from the start Mega was never intended to be a legitimate service and has “all the fundamental qualities” of an infringing file-locker.
