Megaupload, Security, YouTube IT Video of the Week
World-renowned (both famous and infamous) technology hacker Kim Dotcom recently released his new website Mega, which offers 50GB of free storage. Dotcom, who was arrested in early 2012 for copyright infringements on his previous site MegaUpload, has said over 500,000 users have signed up for Mega in the first 14 hours alone.
Here’s his speech from the Mega launch several days ago. Tell us in the comments below if you think his new website will be a success or a failure.
Blasts from the past:
- A year ago, we posted about MegaUpload’s troubles and the ripples felt throughout the web storage industry.
- Sharon Fisher wrote about the story’s impact on legitimate users.
- After file storage site BTJunkie shut down in February 2012, we asked: How much longer will file sharing be able to last?
- In September, Dan O’Connor previewed the MegaUpload comeback tour.
