What’s next for free downloads after the fall of megaupload.com?

With megaupload.com being shut down, it is quite possible that more will follow. HotFile, FileSonic, UploadKing, UploadHere, FileServe, DepositFiles, xShare, wFiles not to mention a hundred others could all go any day now. So what’s next? Torrents! Torrents may be the only way left to host files on the internet without needing to have a fat internet connection and server.  Come sites are already doing it – take a look at ubuntu (a linux distro) for a non-warez download.  With ever more users becoming familiar with bittorrent and other torrent clients as warez/serials/cracks sites get shut down, it makes sense that the technology will be used for legal downloads as well. Plenty of usenet/newsreader users have already made the switch.
