Alleged online piracy kingpin/alleged musician Kim Dotcom is back in business. The controversial and larger than life figure who was arrested and charged with racketeering, copyright infringement and money laundering earlier this year has announced the launch of a brand new version of Megaupload. In typical fashion, Dotcom will launch the website a year after his police raided his mansion on January 20th. The founder previously vowed his Megaupload service would return as a massive global peer-to-peer network that, as he claims, will “turn this world upside down.” The new site will feature enhanced security measures to ensure the government cannot shutdown the service again, such as an “Advanced Encryption Standard algorithm.” Dotcom also revealed that he has been working with lawyers, developers, designers, investors and partners in an effort to create the “ultimate” service.
