The shutdown of file-hoster Megaupload.com and arrest of founder Kim DotCom was a shocker. Now while the trial is still underway, Kim DotCom is all determined to give anti-piracy agencies future sleepless nights with his promise for a new API which would make file-sharing, safe, easy and private.
Tweeting “They abused the wrong guy. I am going to turn this world upside down. Power to the people. Bye bye Echelon." (Echelon - a secret government operated global digital spying network), in further tweets Kim DotCom revealed his plans for an API which seems to offer developers power to create file-sharing applications which would use storage and bandwidth of globally distributed servers with on-the-fly encryption, ensuring complete privacy from government agencies.
