There is RapidShare, MediaFire, HotFile etc. They are still functioning the same, with 100's of zipped parts of pirated games or softwares. I just don't get the US Government's logic.
Though naturally, enforcement on such a massive quantity of files is prone to laziness by file host operators (as well as disinterest due to lack of profitability or lack of liability in their region,) and files get missed.

You just elaborated my thinking! >.>
And also AFAIK no serious rules were applied to the above sharing services I mentioned.
