    Dotcom Megaupload Sued by Hollywood


    Megaupload has been sued by six of the world's largest movie studios.

    The film companies have hit the now-defunct service and its key figures, including founder Kim Dotcom, with a lawsuit on the grounds of alleged copyright infringement
    Represented by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), the group claims that Megaupload "facilitated, encouraged and profited" from copyright violations.

    Megaupload was shut down by the US authorities in 2012 based on similar accusations, but Dotcom continues to deny these charges and is currently battling extradition from his home country of New Zealand.
    "When Megaupload.com was shut down in 2012 by US law enforcement, it was by all estimates the largest and most active infringing website targeting creative content in the world," said Steven Fabrizio, global general council of the MPAA.

    The MPAA rejects the notion that Megaupload was a mere storage locker, claiming that users were rewarded financially for uploading popular content to the site, usually consisting of pirated TV shows, movies and music.
    However, Dotcom has taken to Twitter to deny these fresh allegations, insisting that the website's rewards scheme only applied to files that were less than 100MB.
