    to be fair he has got a point with the way it is working, by offering a encrypted service even the admin isn't legally able to see what the files are, so he can't actually get done for know what has been uploaded unless he is made aware of it then he just has to remove it.

    but to be fair it's the same as using the likes of a VPN to encrypt you connection, your ISP can legal track everything you are doing, but as soon as those packets are encrypted it is illegal to decrypt them without a warrant from the police, so you can do what you like and your ISP has no say and can't take any blame.

    but really what they got him on to start with is pretty bollocks it's the same as going after the ISP's because they give people the connections to download pirate stuff.

    so really his new site does protect him from the same claim they made in the original, as for taking the site down the pirate bay as been taken down more often than a hookers pants, the staff got put in jail. now the site runs on cloud so can't be raided and took down. the fact is these types of sites never stay dead long and the claims normally end up going no where.

    Wait, what?

    I just feel somewhat inclined to cheer him on for some strange reason. I suppose facilitation of piracy is bad, but every single file host on the internet has hundreds of illegal files floating around on their servers. Probably a considerable amount of more serious illegal material as well. Why megaupload in particular?
    Serious question - just wondering if there's an ulterior motive here.

    Plus I resent the American authorities now being self-elected police of the internet. Maybe they're acting on behalf of the American publishers who lost money, on balance - but still...

    P.S - There is never an inappropriate time for Nigel.

    I'm with Agr1ppa on this one. I think this is a great step to ensure freedom on the internet and a blow for government controlled internet censorship.

    Yeah, I quite enjoy seeing him evade the authorities. Well put.
