YouSendIt fights back  
originally posted at gothmusicshare, please read.

"YSI are now following those sites from which people access to their sites the most!

Meaning, if you click on a link to YSI which you found on someone else's they can track you back!

This has been posted as a reply in a forum where someone had upped a file on YSI:

This file has been removed from the YouSendIt servers due to a violation of our terms of service agreement (please see below for further details).

Our service is intended for use solely as a means to share files between a small amount of people. Acceptable usage might include:
Uploading a photograph album to be shared amongst friends of family
Moving an important file or document between work and home computers
Sharing work with classmates or colleagues.

It is not acceptable to share links to files between large amounts of people on internet forums or message boards as this puts excessive load on our file servers and uses up bandwidth. It is with this in mind that we have decided to actively prevent our service being used in this way and take action to make people aware of what is and is not allowed. YouSendIt have decided to start pursuing the websites with the highest instances of abuse of our service.

megaupload still works fine. if anybody has individual servers/storage space for hosting, that could be opted for as well. i've been trying to find songs that are already hosted legally and linking over.
