We’ve known that Megaupload was coming back in some form or another for a while now, but it wasn’t until mid-October that Kim Dotcom pulled back the curtain on the new service. It’s called Mega, and Dotcom says it will be everything Megaupload was and then some. Now the Megaupload founder has revealed more details about the new service, including the domain.
ANNOUNCEMENT: The new #Mega domain is http://t.co/WahyM7DE – Check it out. RT!!
Fittingly, the new Mega will be hosted at Me.ga. For now, the domain redirects users to a splash page with info about the new Mega. We also get a first look at the logo that Dotcom will be going with for the new file sharing site.
The new Web sites features a number of links that point to how the new Mega works or how people can start developing applications with the Mega API. The site once again confirms that Dotcom won’t allow any US-based servers to connect with the new Mega. The site says this is because “safe harbor for service providers via the Digital Millenium Copyright Act has been undermined by the Department of Justice with its novel criminal prosecution of Megaupload.”
Last week, Dotcom announced that the new Mega would be launching on the one year anniversary of the raid that brought the original Megaupload down. It will be interesting to see how the prosecution reacts to the launch.[h/t: The Next Web]
