Kim Dotcom Plans to Revive Megaupload as ‘Mega’
Kim Dotcom is not an unusual name for anyone who’s been keeping up with the news in the past few months. As you may already know he is the founder of the popular file-sharing website Megaupload, which was taken down by the US authorities after raiding Dotcom’s mansion in New Zealand, taking him and his crew into custody. He came back after going through a rough time. And now he’s preparing to give life to his already dead file-sharing service, in a new name called ‘Mega’. And this time he’s going to take precautions to increase protection and privacy to avoid getting cuffed again.
Talking to Wired, Kim Dotcom explained how this new service is going be different from the old Megaupload. This time he will be using a special “Advanced Encryption Standard” to protect the privacy of the content, which allows only a user with a unique key to unlock the encryption to access the file.
This new method also allows Dotcom to stay safe from the DMCA, and avoid getting into trouble ever again. He also mentioned that the new Mega is going to be hosted on many servers around the world, to make it even harder to bring it down.
Mega is starting to sound really good. But it will definitely be a source for piracy as well, but this time no one can mess with them. Although, users will have to watch their backs because they will be on their own under these new protection improvements.
