On January 20, 2013, exactly one year after the Megaupload takedown, Kim Dotcom will host the launch-party for his new file sharing venture dubbed Mega. Dotcom will be hosting the event at his sprawling New Zealand Estate.
Promising a return that is bigger and better than ever, Dotcom has said that Mega will be "powered by legality and protected by the law." "Our easy to use one-click privacy feature will turn encryption into a mass product. We believe within five years half of all Internet traffic will be encrypted with solutions born from our new API," Dotcom says.
"I believe in our rights to privacy and legal sharing. I intend to protect those rights when governments are acting in the interest of corporations rather than society and progress," he adds. What do you think? Will Mega revolutionize the way we share data on the internet? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.
