The name behind controversial streaming site Megaupload, Kim Dotcom, has hinted that the website may relaunch before the end of the year.
Yesterday (August 13) he tweeted: “I know what you are all waiting for. It's coming. This year. Promise. Bigger. Better. Faster. 100% Safe & Unstoppable.”
Megaupload was taken down by the US Department of Justice in January and the owners (including Dotcom) were arrested for allegedly operating as an organisation dedicated to copyright infringement.
Dotcom has since been released on bail with his extradition hearing rescheduled to March 2013 due to issues with the way police have handled the case.
He also later tweeted: “Yes... Megabox is also coming this year ;-)”
Megabox – a service that allows artists to sell music direct to users –will allegedly “unchain” consumers from the music industry, and Dotcom tweeted a teaser of the developing service in June.
