Kim Dotcom’s Mega file sharing site slated for January launch

Kim Dotcom Mega Launch

Kim Dotcom, the most interesting German-born man in New Zealand, is ready to give the entertainment industry a fresh round of heartburn. The mercurial Dotcom has announced that his new Mega file sharing site will go online in January and will offer far better protection for its users’ data than his ill-fated Megaupload site that was shut down by government officials earlier this year. As previously reported, the new site will use the Advanced Encryption Standard that encrypts and decrypts user data within their own browser. The new site will also not work with hosting companies in the United States to prevent the U.S. federal government from conducting further raids on the site.
