Forever slippery internet rockstar Kim Dotcom twists the rules a bit, similar to recent Pirate Bay developments, and heads to the cloud with a new service called Mega, which really only differs from Megaupload because apparently no one but the user knows exactly what’s being shared. via Fact
In short, because Mega won’t be hosting the files – as Megaupload was – the responsibility is with the user rather than the program, while the encrypting process presumably makes it harder for labels, for instance, to know if their files are being pirated, in the same way that Mega claim it’s “impossible” for them to know.
Seems dubious, but we’ll go with it. Still eagerly anticipating their new music service Megabox, which if you haven’t heard you can check out the video below for a peek.
