A few days I was trying to watch some videos hosted at Megavideo the video didn’t load. I just thought it’s another issue of my provider. But then the next day I read in the news that Kim DotCom was arrested and the websites has been suspended by the FBI. That’s a sad week. One of the world’s biggest websites for online streaming and file-sharing is down.
It’s the next big strike against online streams after “kino.to” a website for online streams. In case of kino.to it went well. After a week a new website called kinox.to appeared. Sure for some people the story of kino.to didn’t go well they got arrested and have a pending case.
In case of Kim DotCom it’ll be taking a very long time and it isn’t said that he’s really responsible for this but the music industry reached their target already. As I see it for them it doesn’t matter how the case ends. There target was to stop those sites even if just for a limited time.
I’ll be keeping an eye on it and being excited to know what will be the outcome. To honor the services of Megaupload / Megavideo I’ve embedded the MegaUpload song:
For the people who don’t know Kim. The corpulent man with the headset is him.
