Your point being? Most jurists that I've spoken to seem to share that initial assessment.

Thank you for providing this info Alexander.

It's made me realise that I haven't got a clue as to the similar technicalities being used by Sugar Sync, Dropbox, Box, Google Drive etc.

Interesting info.... but does the site still load ok for you, doesn't load at all for me, I just get a "This web page is not available" error message.

I'm keeping an open mind. It's very early days re this company and Mr Dotcom's activities have been heavily 'perused' for quite some time.

One presumes that the New Zealand Government has not found fault with the use of the '.nz' or else the site wouldn't be able to use it; nor with other aspects of the new business under it's aegis.

Cool, that works (how come?). Not that I plan to sign up or anything, just wanted to be nosy. Also, how does the way its hosted compare to sites like Dropbox etc?

I've got 2.25 GB space with free Dropbox, so 50 MB isn't a lot from Mega.

It's 50Gb you get with Mega. I might sign up for it and use it for storing photos. An extra back-up is always handy.

Anyone want to speculate what this means: (I'm referring in particular why the US is mentioned)

"Export Control

By using the website and our services, you represent and warrant that you are not located in any such country or on any such list. You also will not use the websiteor our services for any purpose prohibited by United States, New Zealand or any other law, including, without limitation, the development, design, manufacture or production of missiles, nuclear, chemical or biological weapons."

As Kim Schmitz has some kind of "history": would you trust him any files/data that are important for you? Or don't you have any considerations in this direction?

It seemed fast until I tried to upload something. Tried a putting up a 6 MB file as an experiment - it got to 9% and seems to have stopped.
