Well as you aptly noted, Rapidshare operates from a mixed setup in Germany and is currently not in (proven) violation of any laws. So they can't be taken down (and should that really happen i'd have to thank the US gov, because this would be the greatest possible boost for the Pirate Party in the (sooner or later) upcoming elections)

American GOV influencing German law would be like the super Armageddon for our current government. Which has already caught intense Flak over EU ACTA. In situations like this, you have to remember that foreign influence on actual services can be seen as.. a very bad thing with the right spin.

Not even saying Megaupload didn't deserve it, they offered streaming with 0 hoops (no captchas, nothing) it was clear to anyone who knew that this wasn't gonna be going well for them.
