    So, are they completely cleared and just looking for a domain?

    They are still in trouble from what i understand, but they are looking for a domain outside of Any Government Control, They think using a domain in a geological region where there is no government, or piracy is everywhere they can get away with bringing back Megaupload.

    Nigeria is the answer, Somalia if desperate and there are no business restrictions.

    Damn! I was going to use me.ga! Just to prove that this was true, I opened a new tab, typed in me.ga and got nothing! For me, this would usually be an ISP/DNS problem. But the whole site itself is down! Goodbye me.ga!

    Yes, the government is so efficient at taking down websites, they traveled through time.

    They've took down way too many innocent sites or forced too many to shut down! I just hope *puts foil hat on* they leave nds-card.com, digitopz.com and plenty of these other sites alone!

    Watch Me.ga get registered in a matter of days, maybe hours now.

    If I owned that wesbite I'd like the index page blank and create a sub directory, /man/

    After some of the money earning file sharing websites (mouthful?) were taken down, many more "friendly" file sharing sites have opened. It's kinda a good thing since if you wanted something big, you needed a megaupload link or else you'd get premium netload, filesonic, fileserve etc.
    Now it's putlocker, peeje, amonshare, upafile etc that all support download managers and great speeds. What happened was quite good for us as the true money grubbers were taken down with it.

    hope the mega master comes back though for goodness sake.

    It's still coming back, Me.ga was just one of several domains they had registered.

    they just don't get the .ga domain from the country that owns the .ga domain.
    they'll most likely still go ahead and get this service running at least for some time before its taken down again

    I don't understand how someone can be punished for a crime that has not been committed yet, but alright - cool story, bro, Dot.Com's going to open the site anyways and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

    Get f'd for one service doesn't mean that the second one should be f'd before it even starts. This is pretty much absurd on a bigger level. Imagine if Dropbox, Google Drive or any other cloud storage would meet the same reception as Kim Dotcom has met so far. Not really innovative regardless of the piracy aspect here..

    To this day I fail to see how Dotcom was in any way responsible for what the users uploaded. I don't quite remember Megaupload's legal status, but I believe it was a limited liability company, and as such, they are not responsible for what the users do with their service, they merely provide a service. There was no way they could check what the users upload as it would break a mountain of privacy-related laws. That said, the major cloud storage providers apparently don't see an issue in rummaging through your stuff. If anything, Dotcom's service was the more "noble" one for not butting into other people's affairs and providing truly private storage space.

    Pretty much the problem may be that there wasn't pre-emtive copyrighted material filtering on megaupload. Not sure how they'd actually make something like that work, but then again, YouTube does have an automaticish system for audio/video copyright (NASA Curiosity landing material comes to mind straight away).

    As for upload-services in general, I see a ton of problems rising from different features. The worst that comes to mind is here in Finland (courtesy of TorrentFreak): http://torrentfreak.com/anti-piracy-group-threatens-to-sue-isps-over-tv-show-piracy-121102/

    Basically the ISP service (Elisa/Teliasonera) just record the program after receiving your response just like a dvr. Only difference is that the service is a cloud service. And yes, it's completely legal to record stuff for personal use regardless of the location of the record (although it's personal use, not meant for others to use). Big surprise that Netflix was even interested in coming to come over here after such problems (and yes, most of the series on Netflix are missing quite a bit of resent seasons of TV shows).
