Indicted Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom launched a new file-sharing website on Sunday, promising users amped-up privacy levels in a defiant move against the U.S. prosecutors who accuse him of facilitating massive online piracy.
The founder of file-sharing website Megaupload, Kim Dotcom, is being allowed back online.
U.S. federal prosecutors have filed papers seeking the extradition from New Zealand of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom and three of his colleagues.
Megaupload boss Kim Dotcom on Friday failed to overturn a ruling that he remain behind bars in New Zealand while US officials seek his extradition for alleged copyright piracy, reports said.
Federal prosecutors say data from users of Megaupload could be deleted as soon as Thursday.
