... of posts going 'My icefilms addon isn't working!'.

Edit - thanks for merging Mods.

My mother has already been on the phone saying she can't get it to work lol. Got to love a 75 year old freetard great grandmother haven't you?

Damn, I am going to miss my daily Letterman show though. :-(

Eldorado... please contact me at xironbillx@gmail.com

I was wondering if you will be folding up shop on the IceFilms plugin and seeing if maybe you would like to join up with Team Navi-X.

Thanks and sorry to hear about MU.

I haven't seen this posted yet, but its gone... That means IceFilms is gone too doesn't it? So apparently they didn't need SOPA/PIPA as something like this would take months to co-ordinate. Jan. 19th, 2012, sad day indeed...

I guess it depends on whoever is behind icefilms. They could in theory find a file sharing service out of jurisdiction and put out a call to users to repopulate but the chances of it ever being the kind of resource it was! Who knows.

Yeah, that's what I hope will happen. There was a great Opinion Piece I read somewhere, and I think it applies. Let me see if I can find it.

Found it!

Fed's shut Down Mega upload

Feds shut down file-sharing site one day after Web protest
By Brendan Sasso - 01/19/12 03:32 PM ET

The Justice Department seized Megaupload.com, one of the world's most popular file-sharing sites, and several of its related sites on Thursday.

Prosecutors charged seven employees of Megaupload with criminal copyright infringement, conspiracy to commit racketeering and other charges.

Each faces up to 55 years in prison.

Megaupload, which operates sites such as Megavideo.com and Megapix.com, claimed to receive 50 million daily visitors, accounting for 4 percent of total Internet traffic. According to court documents, Megavideo.com was the world's 52nd most frequently visited website.

The crackdown comes just one day after a massive Web protest against legislation to expand the power of law enforcement and copyright holders to go after infringing websites.

Prosecutors accuse Megaupload's owners of generating more than $175 million in criminal proceeds and more than half a billion dollars in harm to copyright owners.

I only started using it recently and found it a bit odd that all the sources were with one service.

Gutted about this, only just started using my Apple TV 2 with Icefilms and only the day before last did I purchase a MU premium account in the NY sale! It was only 19e and the pain comes more from losing the site than the money but still shite all the same.
Nothing else seems to come remotely close to icefilms, guess my ATV2 is now pretty useless to me unless I start subscribing to iTunes which I am against anyway!

There goes 4% of the traffic on the Internet!

I am sure a few Icefilms users are a little upset at the moment. Fortunately (?) for me I was unable to use it anyway.
