Would it be possible for the company to filter all the content , my opinion is: its a tough ask .

Its already working, since the acta/sopa scare and the mega upload take down. tons of dl sites now filter content or give you some bs excuse when you try to dl stuff. its very annoying imo.

im sure they can filter it easily. anything over 100mb is most likely illegal 8times outta 10.

Rapidshare is a failed service. Now that they have these crazy throttles, I've already switched to alternative lockers. Adding filtering on top of that isn't going to do them any good.

they thought they could take over and make the rules but they couldnt. the service was ass to begin with even in the hay days they limited you to like 1 download a day.
