Kim Dotcom teases the future of Megabox

Kim Dotcom is rapidly becoming a famous name among tech circles. The German founder of the Hong Kong-based Megaupload is becoming very vocal in his comments and criticisms of the established copyright system. Megaupload was famous for being a pirate's dream, but Dotcom has been expressing interest in a new method of completely legitimate content delivery.

Maintaining the naming scheme of 'Mega___', this new service was to be called Megabox, though was released before Dotcom's arrest. Megabox is meant to shift the balance of power from sites like Pandora and Spotify, both of whom have received criticism for the meager slice of profit pie given to the original musicians.

Above are the two promotional videos which appeared online earlier today. Wanted man or not, Dotcom is putting plenty of work into this new service. He has already stated that some artists are signed onto Megabox under 'exclusive terms', despite the artists and terms being unknown. Watch the videos closely and you can get a glimpse of what seems to be Will.I.Am's page.

Dotcom was due to be extradited to the United States to stand trial, but he has managed to keep free from this for some time yet. As for Megabox's release date, the only information shown is "Coming Soon". We hope it comes sooner than his trial.

Kim Dotcom is not a nice person, and he does not represent the 'common man.' He has committed many crimes in the past, and has had really anti-competitive business ideas. Physically he's 10 ft tall and 800 pounds lol. Why I support him and what he's doing is that he is the victim of a major injustice: a country oppressing a single individual while trying to bully his government. This should not happen to anyone. Kim Dotcom doesn't just represent Megaupload in his trials, but represents almost all forms of future cloud storage. If he is tried and found guilty, it could mean the end to an interesting future of tech, and for that, both big and small should support him.

And who's a nice person? Certainly not the MAFIAA or the corrupt US government.

He's fighting the entrenched copyright monopoly despite the trumped up charges, and he's winning. I tip my hat to the man.

You need to look at his history and back in the BBS days, when he was dealing in illegal bbs boards and credit card schemes then snitched out all of the people part of his group to the feds. Guy is a real piece of work dirt bag.
