Electronic Frontier Foundation comes to the rescue for MegaUpload users, will retrieve their non-infringing files

MegaUpload user? Want your files back? Electronic Frontier Foundation wants to help you

The MegaUpload debacle is in the middle of a complete storm right now, and users who have used the storage provided by MegaUpload are facing the possibility that their files will be completely wiped away and never seen again.




The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has stepped in, with the help of Carpathia Hosting, where they've announced plans to assess the scope of the issue facing MegaUpload users who are at risk of losing their data. Carpathia has created the website, to help users contact EFF. EFF will then take a look at the situation, and if possible, help resolve the issues.


A message from the Electronic Frontier Foundation:


When the United States Government shut down access to Megaupload, a multitude of innocent users who stored legitimate, non-infringing files on the cloud-storage service were left with no means to access their data.


If you are one of these, are based in the United States, and are looking for legal help to retrieve your data, please email the Electronic Frontier Foundation at
