German/Swiss file hosting company, Rapidshare, is allegedly in turmoil. PCtipp reports that Rapidshare is without leadership and that its remaining employees have resigned.
A contact at Rapidshare using the pseudonym “Mark P.” spoke with PCtipp and revealed that the company gave 23 of its 24 employees the choice of voluntary termination at the beginning of this year. According to Mark P., there is only one employee left handling customer support.
As with other file hosting sites like Megaupload, Rapidshare has been under fire for distributing copyright protected works. It’s hard to say what exactly is going on inside Rapidshare. We have reached out for comment and will update this post if there is a response from Rapidshare.
