While his lawyers fight for the return of user data under digital lock and key by the US government, Dotcom is forging ahead with plans to resurrect his file-sharing empire. This week he revealed his plans to launch Megaupload’s successor, Mega.
With a launch scheduled for the one year anniversary of Dotcom’s arrest, Mega said he has enhanced user privacy to keep law enforcement at bay.
“In the past, securely storing and transferring confidential information required the installation of dedicated software. The new Mega encrypts and decrypts your data transparently in your browser, on the fly,” read the teaser at Mega’s URL posted late Wednesday night.
“You hold the keys to what you store in the cloud, not us.”
