The Future Post: Kim Dotcom has announced the return of MegaUpload.
Hope he can restore content people lost when the service shut down. Wondering how he's gonna run a free service now... might have to sell his mansion :P Pretty sure it won't be free of course.
Yea I doubt that stuff is still on the server.I lost alot of stuff when that site went down. Legit stuff not porn and stuff ofcourse that was missed however :)
Yeah, I had a lifetime account. :( I bought it for $20 but I had a lifetime account. :'( I was so sad when the idiotic FBI shut down MU. I lost access to a lot of my backup documents and audios. Good thing I had them saved up on a hard drive and I recovered them before I formatted it.
Take that FBI !
They'll be back.
tunan tunan tunan (Terminator music effect)...... They Won't Dare!! :P
then they will shut it all down again, pointless
Depends where they host though...what domains they use, where their head offices are located on paper, etc.
Somehow i doubt it will be that easy this time. The first time was a blind sided thing out of the public eye. They broke the laws, now im wondering if they even got the balls to do it again without any proof. Doesnt really matter though, they made their point already anyway. They scared the other file hosting companies out of the US.. least some of them.
If the US government fail at taking them down, and so far they've failed in every way, then what chances has anyone got. They come back and they are back for good.
It will end up being shut down again. It will take time, but the issue is media attention. Pirate Bay suddenly hit the media in the UK and then all the ISPs block it. Thats the only time they react. Kim isn't helping himself.
not all ISPs have blocked it only 'major' ones and btw its so easy to get on piratebay and its ment to be blocked for me. this link is exactly like piratebay infact it is piratebay, www.tpb.pirateparty.org.uk u open this up and tell me this isnt piratebay lol
redirects to www.pirateparty.org.uk
It's not PirateBay. The real PirateBay for the UK is this one: http://www.piratebayuk.co.u...
massive publicity stunt lol. only kidding i hope this guy get thing back on track i like him. sock it to em!
ace hopefully all the shit that was on it before, stays. and he looks like a white biggie smalls in that pic hahaa
I love Megaupload, it's my favorite file hosting site..
It's one of my favourite money laundering sites! Seriously, people need to stop acting like this guy is some sort of hero. He's a criminal. This dirtbag fraudulently manipulated stock prices and made millions. Then he embezzled millions more and drove two companies bankrupt for which he's been tried on convicted. Now he's being accused of not just the copyright infringement that everyone focuses on, but on the charges that he used Megaupload for money laundering purposes. He claims he's a "legitimate businessman". Yeah, because legitimate businessmen barricade themselves from police in their safe rooms armed with shotguns. I can't get over the fact that this criminal who's been charged and convicted of stealing millions before is suddenly some internet, folk hero and portrayed like some little guy against the man. Meanwhile he's spending more money than any of us will ever see in a lifetime and driving around in luxury cars with vanity plates like "God", "Guilty", and "Mafia".
"Yeah, because legitimate businessmen barricade themselves from police in their safe rooms armed with shotguns." I believe business people are not some lofty race who have shed their humanity. Considering what the police took unnecessarily and illegally, he had every right to react that way. I don't appreciate you commie tone either; it's his money, let him do what he wants. It's not your place to judge what he does with it.
My commie tone? Sorry I have issue with him spending the proceeds of his crimes. If that makes me a commie, then I'm a goddamned commie. You're damn right I have an issue with people spending the proceeds of crime. You want to go around and worship a convicted criminal who bilks honest people out of millions, you go right ahead but don't try to convince me he's somehow changed his stripes and he's some sort of internet freedom fighter now. He's not. God, I'm so sick of this leftist, hug a thug mentality. So because the police warrant was deemed "too broad" there's a chance this convicted criminal can just carry on with his illegal activities. On a technicality. But you lefty's go on and cheer him. I wonder what it costs to buy off a judge? Oh wait - it doesn't matter because who are we to judge how he spends his criminal millions, right? But hey, look on the bright side. Seeing that Dotcom is banned from using the internet, he can always go back to securities fraud. Or back to stealing and selling card information. Or back to dealing in stolen computer goods. Or back to computer fraud. Or back to insider trading. Or back to embezzlement. There's a lifetime of skills built up from being a career criminal he could fall back on.
...And a collective cheer was heard across the land.
I'm glad he's resisting the government desire to make him go away. Just like Paul Pantone stood up for him-self.(against all odds)
Funny how this case demonstrates why SOPA needed to be passed.
You're an idiot.
how does it demonstrate anything? He runs a legitimate buisness.. he breaks no laws. He is like youtube.
comments like this make me wonder what people do on the internet all-day. Porn? cause you sure aren't reading up on ridiculous bills such as SOPA or the recently shot-down-ACTA. btw, I was advocating everyone I knew, and rallying them against SOPA. Some of us even called into our congresswoman.
People like you belong in Soviet Russia. GTFO.
Stick it to the man! Fight injustice. Love it!
Guys, be careful of all the fake sites, like meegauploadDotNet, they are all spam, contain malware and there are lots of them surrounding this news story. Check the URL before you board!
Funny how much effort and money the government spends to protect crappy movies and music from getting stolen. Then they go and scare even more companies over sea's....but they won't spend that money on the people at all.... Bringing jobs here, the boarders, keeping businesses here, anything? Nah we are going to go make sure Hollywood keeps paying for our campaigns and high salaries for doing nothing.
Like a boss.
