Kim Dotcom Megaupload’s founder has planed to launch a new file sharing service named Mega. Megaupload was a file sharing network where copyrighted material like movies and songs were shared mercilessly. Right now the site is banned and displays a FBI notice. Kim Dotcom’s new site Mega is to replace the old file-sharing network and is set to launch in January.
The new website is said to be raid-proof and will be hosted outside US and also has a encryption system that absolves Mega of responsibility for hosting copyrighted material. All file will be encrypted before upload and a decryption key will be provided to the downloader decrypt the file.

Said Dotcom, “The new Mega will not be threatened by US prosecutors. The new Mega avoids any dealings with US hosters, US domains and US backbone providers and has changed the way it operates to avoid another takedown.”[/box_light]
