Kim Dotcom Is Having A Birthday Party, And You're Invited

Celebrity defendant and founder of MEGA, Kim Dotcom, is having a huge party in New Zealand, and the invite is to everyone in the world.


US Shows Its Hand Against Kim Dotcom

A 191-page document has been shown in the case of the United States vs Kim Dotcom, and within are details of the operations of Megaupload, and the flaunted wealth of Dotcom himself. While Dotcom is in the middle of separate legal action against New Zealand for potentially extralegal spying, the US will use Skype chats, financial data, and email content in their own court case.


The Megaupload Takedown Killed At Least 10 Million Innocent Files

When Megaupload got taken down two years ago, it took a whole hell of a lot of data with it. And eventually it got obliterated. Some of it was pirate data, sure, but some was legit too. And new research shows that, at the very least, 10 million innocent files got the axe.


A Whole Bunch Of Megaupload Data Just Got Obliterated

If you had your heart set on getting back some of the data you had stored on Megaupload, now would be a good time to stop hoping. According to Kim Dotcom, petabytes of user data have already been deleted off old Megaupload servers. Thousands of pirated movies cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.


The FBI Has To Give Kim Dotcom His Hard Drives Back

The High Court of New Zealand just ruled that the FBI has to give slews of Kim Dotcom’s digital property back to him. The agency — along with officials in New Zealand — screwed up pretty bad indeed.


So Kim Dotcom Wants To Sell Me A Patent

Kim Dotcom has a lot of fingers in a lot of pies. He’s fighting off international criminal charges, he’s a Call Of Duty champion, he’s a musician, and now it turns out, he’s also a patent vendor. Kim claims to own the patent that deals with Twitter’s new two-factor authentication service, and he wants to sell it to me.


Kim Dotcom Took 3D Printed Gun Plans Off Mega

In a statement to TechCrunch that was conspicuously devoid of live-tweeting, helicopter chases or any underwater components, Kim Dotcom announced that he has instructed the Mega staff to delete any public copies of the blueprints for this week’s fully 3D-printable gun.


The Carcass Of Megaupload Still Gets Millions Of Visitors A Month

It’s been over a year since Megaupload was ripped from the fabric of the internet, and its successor has already risen to fill the hole. But Megaupload was a truly gargantuan site. So much so that it’s still getting millions of visitors per month, even though there’s nothing there.


Kim Dotcom's Mega Manifesto: 'Privacy Is A Basic Human Right'

Kim Dotcom just broadcast a batshit spectacle live to the world from his mansion in New Zealand. Lofty ideas! Techno! A fake FBI raid! The gist: His new startup Mega isn’t just super-private file storage in the cloud. It’s a political statement about your privacy. Your data is yours and yours alone.


Mega Uses Random Data From Your Mouse And Keyboard To Beef Up Its Already Insane Encryption

Kim Dotcom’s newly launched Mega is determined not to get screwed over by the US feds the way MegaUpload did, and the trick is encryption, lots of encryption. Mega’s really going that extra mile too; it’s using your random mouse and keyboard data to strengthen your crypto keys.
