No matter what you think of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, you have to admit that he has a talent to rally the masses — and now, Dotcom wants to take that  talent to the next level. Dotcom took to Twitter Tuesday to say that he is going to launch a political party simply called the Internet Party next week at his birthday party in Auckland, New Zealand, to which he has invited some 15,000 guests. Details about the program and candidates of the party are still scarce, but Dotcom has said that it wants to oppose government spying and advocate for better internet access. It sounds a bit like the Pirate Party, except that it’s run by someone who’s actually been accused of being a pirate.

  2. What is the legal difference between full length movies uploaded on YouTube and those on Megaupload?

    Both seem to have the same service for end users and same legal / copyright implications.

    -

    I think that the full-length movies on YouTube are selected by the copyright holders to be on YouTube (usually in return for something of value in return). Megaupload got into trouble for allowing movies and music and software to be posted without the permission of the copyright holders.

    It’s sort of like having a few friends come over to your house to watch a football game versus having a few busloads of strangers wander into your house to watch the game. Where’s the kitchen?
