Gabon has shut down Kim Dotcom’s latest domain intended to host his file sharing service just a few days after announcing the me.ga domain.
In yet another bizarre twist to the Dotcom internet opera, The Central African nation that is assigned the .ga domain shut down the site last Tuesday to prevent their domain from being used as a safe haven for file sharing and copyright violation.
"I have instructed my departments... to immediately suspend the site www.me.ga," said Gabon’s Communication Minister Blaise Louembe to AFP.
"Gabon cannot serve as a platform or screen for committing acts aimed at violating copyrights, nor be used by unscrupulous people," the minister added.
The minister’s announcement came just days after Dotcom unveiled plans to launch his new file sharing platform, Mega, on the one year anniversary of his arrest by authorities in New Zealand last January.
