    Rejoice, tempers. Megaupload, the bane of copyright holders of the entire world, might return earlier than you thought.
    KimDotCom has just posted on his official Twitter that the famous filehosting site will return soon, now that ACTA and PIPA seem to be out of the way.

    The new Megaupload will also introduce new features, which Dotcom is teasing on his Twitter.

    Looks like the upcoming weeks will be quite exciting for internet-freedom lovers and filesharers.

    Not that I don't believe you. But I'll rejoice only WHEN it comes back.

    Good news, Megaupload was the number one file sharing website imo, the speed to monthly price was just amazing.

    The only thing I'm concerned about is if the cycle happens all over again, piracy, SOPA, and all that stuff. Maybe in the next 10 years, the IPOP (Internet poops out piracy act) bill will begin.

    Awesome, Megaupload was definitely the best filesharing site out there.

    Isn't this old news? The owner said something about it a while ago, but that was when SOPA or something SOPA relative was still in existance... So I guess this is more 'official'.

    Not quite sure how this is relevant at all, but AFAIK work on the latest PS3 firmware isn't going very far at all.
