Default Zippyshare blocked in UK

Just a general heads up.
Zippyshare has been blocked in the UK by all the big service providers. If you have a VPN you can get around it in short order but this could be another UK/EU anti-piracy move that forum moderators users and posters should be aware of. I know the company have appealed but in UK these appeals tend to go nowhere. They have a case in that their limited file sizes demonstrate they are a cloud service for business not a media piracy enabler but it's still a long shot. The government take their cues from big business not small media companies.
I'd appreciate this info being passed around esp to other forums. It's a pretty important consideration especially in posts that only contain zippy links.
Cheers
BOC

One of the more useful hosts. The limits in filesize were more than offset by the lack of restrictions.
They are appealing, as I wrote. Maybe it'll work for once.
In the meantime I'd urge posters to provide multiple mirrors in each post which would enable forum members access if one is blocked, regionally disrupted or restricted.

Are there any other file hosts that are restricted over there? And I remember you (boc) mentioning some time ago that there is at least 1 image host that is restricted in your area... maybe you could list the problem hosts and we can get Larry to pin it for reference.

Imagebam is still hugely problematic as a host in all of Europe, India other Asiatic countries. It is essentially a continental American host. i find hardly any of their hosted images load and any posts to their service I tend to leave to other moderators because I simply cannot see them.
I find Rapidgator and Uploaded are strangled as hosts and currently Filejoker is little more than a joke with its self imposed limitations as a means of forcing people to pay fees usually associated with guns and getaway cars. I stopped trying to access Deposit when they became the Imagetwist of file hosts with their clowncar popups and popunders. I tried to speak to them about it but they basically told me to f-off. Talking to other users from other areas I have discovered this kind of thing varies from region to region and ISP to ISP.
Outright banning of online storage is unusual accross the entire country applied by all ISPs. This kind of blocking is normally restricted to torrent sites and tube hosts etc. If you want a list there's one on Wikipedia that's updated from time to time and for UK only https://www.blocked.org.uk is a very informative unofficial resource.
Most file hosts avoid bans by marketing themselves as business and industry cloudhosts and responding instantly to removal orders but that doesn't stop the ISPs from making life a misery for users with restrictions on traffic speed. They claim they never throttle but the truth is they do. They all do too much trade with streaming media and the anti-piracy lobby is very powerful in all of Europe.
An outright ban however is unusual and rarely overturned which was why when I got the memo about the 403s I investigated as far as I could. If I had to guess, someone reported something being stored on Zippy that was extreme and the authorities in Europe now use hammers to crack nuts in these environs.
It has pissed my work off because my editors have had those of us working remotely using them for some time to transfer work in progress files and research archives without overtaxing internal servers and suddenly workflow is very disrupted. For limited file sizes Zippy transfer rate even as a free user is fast even on my rural connection. On forums while I don't expect it to cause havok. I do expect it to be an inconvenience and may even be the prelude to a new Mega-style action against file hosts.
It's something members moderators and admin should be mindful of. It wouldn't hurt to ask people to include several mirrors in their posts so everyone can access. This may cause problems for those users who only post to one host in return for a kickback but this may be the time to address whether forums are here to enrich a few posters or for the enjoyment of all.
How are files hosts and image hosts restricted in other regions? I'd be interested to understand how other members worldwide are affected.
