FreeDrive Changes Its Mind On Why Service Was Discontinued
from the no,-we-didn't-mean-that dept
Last week FreeDrive announced that they were pulling their free file sharing service claiming that it was being used for piracy and that the government was investigating them. This week, they’ve suddenly changed their minds and admitted they made that piracy stuff up. Apparently, they really shut it down because it was costing too much, but that didn’t sound good. Piracy sounds like a much more noble reason to shut something down. What they didn’t realize is that it would generate such publicity, so now they’re admitting that they made the whole cover story up. Of course, I’m not sure why they’re bothering to change their story now.
