Kim Dotcom’s MEGA Raises Piracy Controversy Yet Again

Posted on the 23 February 2013 by Nrjperera @nrjperera

Kim Dotcom, born in 1974 as Kim Schmitz, rose to popularity back in 90s as a teenage hacker and entrepreneur. He is not one to rest on his laurels, however. He continued to bask in the limelight as the founder of Megaupload, the online fire sharing service that was taken down by the United States Department of Justice a little more than a year ago.

In spire of that setback, Kim Dotcom has been busy getting back on his feet, and get back did he! He once again is getting on the nerves (obviously a euphemism) of anti-piracy proponents with the successor of Megaupload, MEGA. The new service is also an online storage platform. It offers 50GB worth of storage for FREE, with premium features available for a fee.

The questions up in the air are not simple – as they usually aren’t. The two main conflicting concepts: piracy and privacy.

There is the argument that people need a certain degree of privacy. On the other hand, piracy is a serious issue, and MEGA is not exactly a proponent of anti-piracy. Take a look at this infographic to see some numbers about MEGA, its users, and piracy issues.
