Kim Dotcom speaks of new Megaupload; "Bye bye Echelon. Hello Freedom" Kim Dotcom has come out swinging, again.
The founder of file-sharing public enemy #1 Megaupload, has said the site will be back, and this time bigger and better than ever.

Says Dotcom (via Freak): "MEGA will return. Bigger. Better. Faster. Free of charge & shielded from attacks. Evolution!"

"Developers get ready. The Mega API [application programming interface] will provide incredible powers. Our API and your Mega tools will change the world."


Hosters around the world will be able to connect to the network to add servers and bandwidth, as long as you aren't U.S.-based: "We are building a massive global network. All non-US hosters will be able to connect servers & bandwidth."

Dotcom says he has been in contact with developers of file managers, email and fax tools, VoIP and video streaming apps. Most importantly, the new Mega will provide more privacy including one-click encryption of every transfer, for free, and on-the-fly.

"They abused the wrong guy. I am going to turn this world upside down. Power to the people. Bye bye Echelon. Hello Freedom," Dotcom boldly concluded.
