Kim Dotcom launches Mega online storage service

Monday 21 January 2013 | 09:06 CET | News

Kim Dotcom, who founded the MegaUpload file sharing website shut down in January 2012, has launched Mega, a cloud storage service offering users 50 GB of free storage and featuring a sophisticated encryption system. After Dotcom was indicted for copyright piracy by a US court he promised that he would not start a MegaUpload-style business until the criminal case was resolved, AP writes. Although the new website also allows users to share large files, Doctom claims its encryption system will protect him from the legal dispute that entangled MegaUpload.

The Motion Picture Association of America, which filed complaints about MegaUpload’s copyright infringement, said it was still reviewing how the new project would operate, but was sceptical, given Docom’s history of “pushing stolen, illegitimate content into the marketplace”. Dotcom announced at the Mega launch event at his home in Auckland, New Zealand, that the site had over 1 million visitors and 500,000 registrations in the first 14 hours.
