I didn't use any of the other filehosting services, either tongue.gif. I'm very picky about what websites I regularly visit, primarily because of the way ads are handled.

I was very sad when all the data came down, it affected more legitimate users than otherwise.

I can't see how the "take down" function will work at all now if the files are AES encrypted. How are they going know what is what unless they have the key?

That's the point, unless someone gets access to the key to download, they will have no idea what's actually contained. So no bots checking all the links unless they can break the key patterns, AFAIK. It will drastically reduce the amount of take down notices, and hopfully absolve "Mega" of any liability.

The big claim (propaganda, whatevs) was that Dotcom was paying the people who uploaded illegal content to upload more.

I don't recall precisely it's pricing, however it was something like $10/month (if you bought directly from them - referral services would be cheaper, usually) for no limits.
The thing with MU is that, for its' free users, the speeds and limits were the highest of most of the filehosts.
Several file hosts would limit free users to speeds like 150KB/s and like 1 file every couple hours...MU didn't

Well I meant that you would pay your MegaUpload membership and then on top of that I could make a website saying, "For $5 you can get 30 day access to my MU key code and download to your heart's content."

I loved MU, I grabbed a lot of big game mods from there because it consistently gave me good download speeds.

I think he bought a premium account on MU.com and he won't be getting it back?
