En domstol i Tyskland slog nyss fast att RapidShare inte är ansvarig för det material som användare laddar upp till tjänsten. Christian Schmid som grundade RapidShare säger:

With its 1-click file-hosting model, RapidShare responds to legitimate interests of its users and will continue to do so in the future.
