Kim Dotcom announces new file sharing website called Mega, US piracy case still pending

Kim Dotcom, the founder of Megaupload, has launched a new file-sharing website a year after he was accused by US prosecutors of facilitating massive online piracy said to have cost the entertainment industry $500 million.

During the New Zealand announcement, the internet mogul says he was forced to close a similar website.

“Mega is going to be huge, and nothing will stop Mega – whoo!” Dotcom, 39, shouted from a giant stage in the grounds of his mansion.

Dotcom, also known as Kim Schmitz, organized a fake police storm of the event which was nothing more than a prelude to his dance number with several models.

Kim Dotcom, who denies wrongdoing, faces up to 20 years in prison if he is convicted.

US authorities are trying to extradite the German-born tycoon from New Zealand, where he is free on bail. Prosecutors say Dotcom made tens of millions of dollars while filmmakers and songwriters claim they lost the copyright revenue.
