Gabon Government Suspending Me.ga Domain Name

Posted Nov 6, 2012

Earlier Pulse2 wrote about how Kim “Dotcom” Schmitz was going to launch a new cloud storage service called Me.ga. The domain names that end with a .ga is controlled by the Gabon government.

Blaise Louembe, Gabon’s communications minister, said that West African nation “cannot serve as a platform or screen for committing acts aimed at violating copyrights, nor be used by unscrupulous people.” This is just a small hiccup for Mr. Schmitz and he is still planning to launch a new service.

“The [new] site is not even functional yet,” stated MegaUpload’s worldwide defense attorney Ira Rothken. “MegaUpload and Kim are innocent and presumed innocent. It sounds like a lack of net neutrality in Gabon…We’re just going to use a different domain.”

Currently Me.ga is run by Twitter user @o for “Onymous.”  Some of the tweets that O sent out include:

– me.ga  is deconstruction at its momentum.
– Of course we will entertain offers from @KimDotcom’s enemies in the millions of dollars (or bitcoins) for the http://me.ga  domain.
– @KimDotcom offered us 1% of Megabox in exchange of http://me.ga  that is 1% of nothing in exchange of the almighty Me!
