Kim Dotcom announces Mega, successor to Megaupload
According to The Guardian, Kim Dotcom, founder of the banned Megaupload filesharing site, has announced a new version called Mega designed to sidestep the American laws under which he is being prosecuted for £175m ($282m) worth of alleged online piracy, racketeering and money laundering.
Dotcom on Thursday announced the new online storage service, saying it would give users direct control – and responsibility – over their files. The site has previously been referred to as Megabox in a teaser video.
