Mega hits 1 million users after one day as Kim Dotcom officially launches the service - The Next Web
Mega-Launch: a fake FBI raid, dancing girls-oh, and human rights! | Ars Technica
MEGA's launch party was held at Mr. dotcom's mansion in Auckland, New Zealand on January 19th local time. At this press conference Mr. Dotcom admitted that the number of registered users exceeded 1 million in just one day after launching MEGA and expressed that momentum as "we can not stop now". A helicopter of the FBI also appeared at the party venue, but the party was held without delay. Once for this helicopterfakeIt is said that.
From the sky "This is an illegal rally, please stop the noise" Helicopter calling in the loudspeaker. This is part of the party.
The party began with a mood that came up with a flowing dance number, such as flowing dance numbers, but also in the latter half a bullshit company Q & A was done, Mr. Dotcom said "The Internet does not belong to anyone, company, government To rule and control this is a retrograde to innovation and I have to quit. "
According to Mr. dot com, the trigger for the birth of MEGA isA sudden arrest play by New Zealand policeIt seems that this service was not born if there was nothing at that time. On January 19th, Mr. Dotcom expressed it as "an incredibly terrible thing and a wonderful birthday."
"According to the United Nations, privacy rights seems to be basic human rights, but the government secretly spies everyone and violates basic human rights," Dotcom said. "Why is data seized when I do not do anything illegal? MEGA respects your privacy right and developed technology to keep your data confidential and safe. By using MEGA , You can stick 'NO' to someone who wants to know about you.You can say 'NO' to the government who wants to spy, and 'YES' for free internet and privacy right I can express it. "I talked about the concept of MEGA.
The contents of the question and answer seem to have been as follows.
(It was said that Mr. dot com released separately from MEGA) "Music sharing site "MegaBox"When will the launch be? What about other related sites?
I think that it will take about six months. Because I am a perfectionist.
What is the idea to prevent things like Megaupload from happening again?
I am checking from the corner to the corner of the site whether it complies with the law.
Do you think New Zealand's foolish government arrested you, should you be responsible for doing business in vain?
The impression of the government is trying to make something misunderstood. I hope there is a solution to the problem. I am not a criminal, I do not do anything wrong.
MEGA is content storage, but can it also change to content delivery (distribution source)?
of course! If we can distribute and distribute contents, that is our goal.
How much of development is outsourced? Are you planning to use the New Zealand labor force?
Development is done by fellow Mattias and Bram. When Megaupload was closed, there were 220 employees worldwide, and they decided to lose their job without retirement money. Therefore, we plan to re-hire people who want to re-hire. I am hiring hundreds of people in New Zealand.
When expressing MEGA, should I call it "startup (started)"? Or "Reboot (restart)"?
There was not anything that was Megaupload in MEGA, and I made it all from one.
What do you expect from young people from MEGA?
The goal that I am setting is always to provide a platform for knowledge and education. Piracy (copyright infringement) is a common problem that Internet companies need to deal with, which is the same with Google. Can someone shut down him as speeding up with the car I bought for myself?
According to Dotcom, Megaupload provided a reward program that pays money according to the number of files downloaded, but uploading files with a file size of 100 MB or more obviously infringes on copyright Payment has not been made to users who have been in use, and they were not able to receive payment unless they were premium users in the first place, but authorities seem to have not gotten into such circumstances at all.
"Anyway, I would have wanted to close Megaupload," Mr. dot.com. Hollywood and the Internet suggest that we should discuss how to solve this problem together, but what will happen?
