All DVD Links Are Dead

For those who may have missed my earlier post regarding mega.nz links, I wanted to be more explicit:

All DVD links are currently dead. It will take a while to re-upload the DVDs, either to FileFactory or to new mega.nz accounts.

There will also be a delay, while I decide on my “next” strategy for sharing DVDs here. I appreciate the speed of mega.nz downloads and uploads when I post DVDs. But the frequency with which recordings get “taken down” for alleged copyright infringement is frustrating–especially since the items in question are *not* official releases. Also, five “take down” notices on a mega.nz account results in that account being deactivated. Since I pay, both for ample storage space and no restrictions on file transfers (up or down)–losing an account means losing the cost of the remainder of my “PRO” subscription.

For now, I am going to focus on sharing new CD bootlegs… 🙂

  1. I am sorry to hear about this. So stupid and annoying.Seriously, if you get 5 take-downs, legitimate or not, your account is suspended, but you still have to go on paying? Is that even legal?
    I hope you find a solution, and meanwhile I am definitely enjoying the CD bootlegs. 🙂
    Thanks for all your work,

    1. In my first mega account (which was shutdown), and my current mega account, I have paid annually. When shut down occurs part-way through the year, mega does not refund what you have paid for the remainder of the year.

      Mega.nz offers a small discount when you pay for 12 months up front. But what you are suggesting is a good reason to pay month-by-month. (At least I am assuming they would stop billing me, if they shut down a paid account.)

      That said, in the short term I am planning to try using free mega.nz accounts only.

  2. I am using my existing mega.nz account for a large amount (~2 TB) of private bootlegs shares. Consequently, any “go forward” plan will mean separating the “public” links (which are used here on Purple Hippies) into one-or-more separate accounts on mega.
