Kim DotCom launches the enormously popular global Mega encrypted filesharing cloud service
Timed to the day last year when USA FBI agents went to New Zealand seizing DotCom's servers, homes, vehicles, cash which allegedly New Zealand Judges deemed was illegal and a gross invasion of many of Kim DotCom's rights, Kim is preparing to launch tomorrow his new fully end-end encrypted file sharing cloud sourced site Mega out of New Zealand.History/Findings/Opinion
When USA agents raided Kim DotCom's Megaupload services overseas in such a grievous jack booted action, it completely appeared to me that the USA Judicial had deliberately planned to illegally seize all means from Kim DotCom to adequately mount a professional defense team to fight the many inflated charges, taking his vehicles, homes, cash, IT infrastructure and even charging a Megaupload web editor/designer with a potential 15yr prison sentence in their attempt to gain a conviction and flip Megaupload employees against Kim. Apparently such jack booted efforts appeared to have backfired. The New Zealand Judges apparently ruled the gross raid and actions were far beyond what is allowed in New Zealand and Kim had managed to hide many millions in assets away from the USA search and seizure raid which allowed Kim DotCom to mount an adequate defense team to tackle the USA Government behind their New Zealand ambush raid on him.
I discussed much of this at length here in the Linux Mint Forum, GooseStepping FBI Agents Shut-Down MegaUploads sites
What is worth pointing out here is that I made 5 suggestions to Kim DotCom for his new file sharing site and for others to use as a blueprint in the future
. Kim DotCom implemented FOUR of the 5  in Mega. The only one not visibly implemented or directly mentioned was for Entirely Anonymous filesharing on the encrypted files. International Laws forcing ISP providers to keep IP addresses on customers, visitors and uploaders/downloaders might be part of a backroom agreement which is not widely publicly listed nor mentioned. However it is entirely likely Kim's legal team added that in the legal user/site agreement terms to further isolate them from foreign nations judicial interference.
Briefly, end-end 2048 RSA encryption prevents Kim DotCom's Mega employees from ever knowing what is being uploaded/downloaded unless that file is decrypted. Only the sender has the encryption key which presumably they privately share with those wanting to download it along with that files link. Cloudservers based in New Zealand are allegedly not subject to the vast majority of visible and invisible USA Internet laws. Mega's pro accounts deal in Euro currency's not USD again closing that backdoor to USA agents by not accepting USA currency.
The new Kim DotCom Mega Encrypted filesharing service is entirely built from the ground compared to his vulnerable ground server based MegaUpload and with Kim DotCom implementing my suggestions it appears Kim has largely insulated himself and employees from Jack Booted foreign agents attempting Illegal raids, searches, arrests and seizures.
Despite a single Mega Rack space having more bandwidth than all of New Zealand and some 100,000 new registered users in the first hour, the pre-launch of Mega has been so active and anticipated the load has jumped over 250GB/s in new members during today's pre-launch which has temporarily dragged down Mega's resources. With tomorrow's (Jan 20th. 2012) launch, I expect Kim DotCom and Mega to be flying the friendly skys free of censorship and foreign nations manipulation.
Mega's grand launch tomorrow will allegedly begin the implementation of many additional Mega features .NOTE: I'm experiencing broken SSL alerts via my Calomel SSL addon in Firefox and unable to successfully pull up the Mega website via Firefox nor Opera browsers. I can Only access the Mega filesharing site via Chrome or Chromium Browsers. Keep that in mind if you are using a different browser and having difficulty's connecting to that service.
