The founder of a website shut down by U.S. authorities for piracy has launched a new file-sharing site that he claims is impervious to copyright infringement claims.
Kim Dotcom launched Mega on Sunday. The new website allows users to upload and store files, just like Megaupload, his earlier website. Furious that Megaupload users were sharing copyrighted files through that site, the U.S. Department of Justice, at the urging of the Motion Picture Association of America, indicted Dotcom for enticing users to upload pirated files, TechNewsDaily noted.
Last year, New Zealand police arrested Dotcom, closed the website and seized his lavish estate. He’s currently fighting American efforts to extradite him to face trial in the U.S.
So, what’s new about Dotcom’s latest website?
