New MegaUpload Promised Ad Service Hijacking Your Browser

Kim Dotcom has hit on a wizard wheeze to profit from his new cyberlocker service. Press release claims that Kim wants to use software which hijacks all the advertisements your browser sees and replaces them with its own. In fact, if Dotcom gets away with it, his new file-hosting service would cannibalize the revenues of other businesses.

The good thing is that service called Megabox will be launched to let musicians and other content creators cut out traditional intermediaries like record studios and instead get paid to provide their wares through the site. However, Kim also has a plan where users of the website could get all those files for free in case they download a refined version of “Megakey”. The latter was initially launched on MegaUpload two years ago and works by replacing at least some adverts on any sites users visited with ads served up by Mega.

Right now, it isn’t against the law. Ad-blocking software is known for many, but the very idea of software replacing adverts with others and thus diverting profits from sites might be regarded as a foul. According to copyright legislation, site owners have exclusive rights to their online property and are able to decide how it looks, which includes the choice of which adverts display on their pages. As such, Megakey might violate site owners’ IP rights.

Kim Dotcom hasn’t provided any comments on the ethics and implications of Megakey, but the experts believe that if he really plays this card he will fast find himself out of friends. Thus far, Kim was successful in attracting a fair bit of sympathy for the way that the US and New Zealand governments illegally colluded to arrest him. However, Megakey, if enforced, might blow that for him and get him in trouble.

Ad-blocking program is one thing, but pinching others’ hard work for your own profits will definitely make you the bad guy. The only point is that Internet users would be required to give permission before being installed on their PCs. Online users looking for free music may not be very concerned in case Kim annoys site owners, but they might find themselves in trouble if the idea spreads. Others could employ the same scheme and steal each other’s adverts, so the world would end up with a few ad-serving programs at war with each other on your computer.
