MegaUpload Plans Return — Outside the U.S.

And if there's any way for the company to put the screws to the feds, it probably will


It has been more than seven months since Megaupload was shut down for violating anti-piracy law by hosting copyrighted material, and Kim Dotcom is beginning to make grandiose claims about a relaunch of his site. He announced more of the new site's planned features over Twitter on Tuesday.

"MEGA will return. Bigger. Better. Faster. Free of charge & shielded from attacks. Evolution!" tweeted the founder of Megaupload. Dotcom also posted, "We are building a massive global network. All non-US hosters will be able to connect servers [and] bandwidth. Get ready."
