Any type of file can be published on the web site. Unregistered users can instantly retrieve files sizes of 1 MB. After registration, a user is not subject to any limit when downloading a single file, but is limited to 50 MB transfer a day.

In 2015 it was successfully sued for copyright infringement, although it immediately appealed to the court.[7]
