New Sequel to Megaupload!

Kim Dotcom, the founder of Megaupload, has set a new file-sharing site Mega, which is also a sequel of the earlier Megaupload which was closed down last January.

The site when online on Sunday and Mr Dotcom claims that it complies with the law and any effort to bring it down will be fruitless.

             “This is not some kind of finger to the US government or to Hollywood“, Kim said to the Reuters.

“Legally, there’s just nothing there that could be used to shut us down. This site is just as legitimate and has the right            to exist as Dropbox, Boxnet and other competitors.”

After the site was launched, within a few hours Kim tweeted that, it had received 250,000 user registration. The limited server capacity made it available to a few others. The site will be encrypted so the data can be accessed by the uploaders only. Cloud storage is also being made use of storing data for easy access to users.

The earlier site Megaupload was closed down due to pirated contents uploaded by many users.

The raid on Megaupload put 25 petabytes of data uploaded to it by its 50 million members into a legal limbo, BBC reports.
