    So... Megaupload re-launched as "Mega" this past weekend, and it took no time at all before some anti-piracy group began working to cut off the site's finances.

    No soup for you!
    Yeah, the anti-piracy guy kills me. He's not going after "legitimate" cloud storage companies, the thing is that any of them can be misused. He's leaving Dropbox alone when someone can as easily link to files there as they can on Mega. I just can't figure out how the guy gained so much traction when he's a sleaze peddler.

    I signed up. I have my reservations about doing business with them due to what happened. But I am also looking for Terabyte level offsite backups and this might be it.
