Seized MegaUpload Domains on Sale

A few weeks ago the news was that the seized MegaUpload and MegaVideo domains ran malicious adverts. Now something else is happening with Mega-related domains: a number of domain names previously owned by Kim Dotcom have apparently expired and can be bought by anyone.

When Dotcom’s house was raided 3 years ago, the American government targeted a few domains it claimed linked to the “Mega conspiracy”. The indictment listed such names as MegaUpload, MegaVideo, MegaPix.com, MegaCar.com, MegaBackup.com, etc. After the raid all those websites were shut down, with MegaUpload.com and MegaVideo.com displaying messages telling the Internet users that the services were under investigation.

However, these messages disappeared after the US authorities made a mistake, which also caused the seized MegaUpload and MegaVideo sites to run malicious adverts. Moreover, MegaBackup.com appeared to be no longer seized – instead it has been in use by a different company selling backup solutions. It confirmed it is in no way affiliated with Kim Dotcom, MegaUpload or its former staff. MegaBackup just bought the domain name after it had expired.

The most interesting fact is that MegaBackup was not the only domain to expire – the same happened to MegaCar.com, MegaGogo.com and MegaPix.com, which is now on sale for as much as $35,000. The new owners of MegaGogo.com also confirmed that they acquired the domain after it had expired in January.

Well, all those domain names are really linked to MegaUpload and were mentioned in the indictment, but the ones on sale weren’t actually seized. This is why anyone could have got them – this has happened to Kim Dotcom’s kimpire.com, for example.
