Industry Hit Mega with Copyright Complaints

Kim Dotcom started his new file-sharing site late January and has already got 150 copyright notices.


Nevertheless, Kim isn’t letting this pressure from the entertainment industry get him down. Actually, he is using it as proof that he really is legal. According to the site’s attorney, Mega has reacted promptly to copyright infringements and made an official announcement that it doesn’t want people to use the service for infringing purposes. The website allows people to store 50GB for free which can be shared among users. This would have been an invitation for piracy in the good old days, but Kim Dotcom has claimed he designed the site to avoid copyright infringement allegations which marred MegaUpload.

Dotcom made a promise that any violating material to be found on his Mega will be removed, and this promise is already being put to the test. However, a French service called Mega-search.me is currently showing copyrighted content, including “Django Unchained”, Microsoft Office packages and a tune by Elton John, on Mega’s servers.

The matter is that the content shared on Mega can be decrypted only if the uploader shares the encryption key, i.e. Mega can’t “see” what’s being uploaded on its servers. According to Kim’s lawyers, Mega was responsive to notices of copyright violation, including assisting some in fixing incomplete or defective notices. The site had already received 150 takedown requests from not only the US, but also other countries.

Despite the fact that Mega doesn’t have a search engine, like MegaUpload did, one of the French websites is already offering people the chance to browse Mega: Mega-search. By the way, an attempt to find out who owns this search engine failed. The only thing that is clear about Mega-search is that the service is hosted by OVH in France and uses a San Francisco-based company – CloudFlare.

Anyway, the site lawyers insist that the recently launched Mega should be treated as any legitimate cloud-storage service. It is normal that copyright extremists heckle such dual-use technologies focusing on the bad uses and ignoring the socially beneficial uses. However, the industries will surely put the new cyberlocker to the test, particularly with Dotcom still waiting for the extradition trial to be concluded.

Westoz avatarInteresting, i preferred Megaupload when using the file sharing sites. Mainly because you could resume where you left off if something went wrong with the download. Mostly all the others - you had to start all over again.
Thanks for the heads up.

mini_super_nova avatarMega sucks arsss from what I have seen so far. I uploaded some stuff, took me 3 or 4 attempts, as the upload stopped and did not resume where it left off (in Chrome, which they have praised so much..) and then I thought I just sent a friend a simple link, so they can directly download from there, but noooooo, the friend got a link to where he has to first sign up with mega as well and he has now been waiting for 2 weeks for the confirmation / activation e-mail which has not arrived. Then there is the all-important question, how long will my stuff be safe on Mega? Should I bother wasting 50GB of my paid bandwidth? I am much more comfortable using Google Drive or similar for storage, even if I don't get free 50GB, but at least I get a reputable household name and software that works. What a crock Mega is... seriously, go fcuk off you cheap chump crooks, I will go and delete my account there now.

danielstyle avatarYou right, the upload system isn't easy and very unreliable.

No avatarForget about Mega, I have tried every cyberlocker, at one point during their height I was paying for 11 different ones, I lost money when Mega went down, lost money when filesonic and netload went and retracted their services screwing you over and have now stopped paying for all except one and this is a new one. Bitcasa, it's awesome, FULLY UNLIMITED for $10USD a month, thankyou very much. You can sign up for a free account or a paying account by using my referral link

Honestly and truthfully the best cloud storage available, truly unlimited, fully encrypted and the cheapest I've ever used.
