Controversial Businessman’s New File-Sharing Service Is already Fielding Complaints

The new file-sharing service that controversial tech entrepreneur Kim Dotcom recently created has reportedly already begun receiving notices to remove copyrighted material. Mega, launched earlier this month, has reportedly fielded 150 copyright warnings since launching. Dotcom (born Kim Schmitz in Germany) still faces extradition from New Zealand to the US in connection with his now-shuttered Megaupload site for allegedly committing crimes related to online piracy. He started Mega earlier this year. (Gizmodo)(The Conversation)(Computerworld)
