The eccentric Megaupload founder is back with a new service that's sure to be a stick in the craw of the U.S. federal prosecutors pursuing a copyright infringement case against him. Also, libraries may be moving to a bookless future, but not if patrons have anything to say about it.
The controversial and colorful online troublemaker Kim Dotcom has a new business venture. His last one, the file-sharing site Megaupload, got him indicted by American authorities, who say he got rich pirating content. He's new venture is just called Mega.
U.S. prosecutors warn that they may soon delete their personal data they have stored on the file-sharing site Megaupload, citing illegal transfer of music and movies on the site.
Musician Jonathan Coulton joked about whether content makers were finally making money now that Megaupload was shut down, but it isn't all laughs. He talks about what the MPAA should learn from the Megaupload shutdown.
