Authorities in Gabon suspend the Me.ga domain, Kim Dotcom's upcoming cloud storage site. The .ga domain is the country domain for Gabon. Their Communication Minister had this to say about the situation:
"I have instructed my departments... to immediately suspend the site www.me.ga," announced Communication Minister Blaise Louembe, saying he wanted to "protect intellectual property rights" and "fight cyber crime effectively". "Gabon cannot serve as a platform or screen for committing acts aimed at violating copyrights, nor be used by unscrupulous people," the minister said.
Kim Dotcom has responded via his twitter account with the tweet:
Don't worry. We have an alternative domain. This just demonstrates the bad faith witch hunt the US government is on.
It seems that Kim Dotcom will still have resistance getting his new cloud storage site online. And I think It will be interesting to see how his new site pans out.
Maybe there will be another over-the-top raid? Here is a link to a story I posted which explains a little more about the raid in January of 2012.
Dotcom's new webstie should open up in January of 2013 unless something prevents him from doing that, namely an extradition to the United States. Dotcom's extradition is pending at this time.
Keep checking back to see this story develop.
