It looks like the RIAA are not done with Megaupload and its owner Kim Dotcom.
Two years after the U.S. Department of Justice raided his New Zealand home and indicted him for the revenue he made off of his website, the RIAA has decided to add on to the ever growing pile of lawsuits against Dotcom. The organization, who has been at it for almost 15 years indicting companies like Napster and Limewire, has filed a lawsuit against Megaupload, stating that Dotcom allowed his users to participate in “rapid, unrestricted downloading of popular, infringing content.” This lawsuit isn’t the first one against Dotcom this month, as the MPAA filed a similar lawsuit earlier last week.
Since the closure of Megaupload Dotcom has opened a new website similar to his old one called Mega. Dotcom has reacted to the filing by stating on twitter “Copyright extremists are having a party on #Megaupload’s corpse after the witch hunt and public burning of a totally legal cloud storage site.”
Do you agree with the RIAA or should they leave Megaupload dead? Leave your comments below.
