For its part, the platform would have encouraged users to make backup copies of their files, which would initially cease to be available from this very day, November 30. Uploaded.net has not made reference to the reason why it will stop working either, since it has only alluded to the fact that “the situation is such that it has to be closed”.

It was in 2014 when the Regional Court of Hamburg (Germany) determined that Uploaded.net had not removed content protected by copyright, after receiving several notifications to delete these files.
