Kim Dotcom was sit to launch his new Megaupload replacement site in January but it looks like the site has been shut. How can a site be shutdown before it even launches? The United States is just not having it and doesn’t want Kim Dotcom to launch another site. I’m sure his Lawyer will find some loop hole to get him back on the web.
According to the New Zealand publication, Stuff.co.nz, Louembe has instructed that www.me.ga be suspended and said the small West African nation “cannot serve as a platform or screen for committing acts aimed at violating copyrights, nor be used by unscrupulous people.”
Ira Rothken, the Silicon Valley attorney who oversees MegaUpload’s worldwide defense, confirmed in an interview with CNET that MegaUpload’s successor site will not be available at Me.ga. But Rothken added that the new service is still on its way.
“The [new] site is not even functional yet,” Rothken said. “MegaUpload and Kim are innocent and presumed innocent. It sounds like a lack of net neutrality in Gabon… We’re just going to use a different domain.”
