Gabon suspends the domain

Gabon suspends the domain

Bad news for and his project to resurrect Megaupload: Gabon’s has ordered the immediate suspension of the “”, which as we know was the one chosen by the computer to restart its controversial data storage service the next January 19.

The reason? Communications Minister of Gabon, Blaise Louembe, has said that his country’s decision is in line “to protect intellectual property and fight effectively against cybercrime” as New Zealand media have reported EFE cited by:

“Gabon can not serve as a platform or screen seeking to commit acts violating the intellectual property that is used by unscrupulous people,” said Louembe.

Dotcom was chosen not only because the domain fits perfectly with the name of your project, but because, as explained at the time, and here you have, use domains that are under the control of the United States, as. com or. net, represents a danger … And we know what you mean.

Now, Dotcom said via Twitter that he has “an alternative domain” and you will face the Gabonese government measure which it considers demonstrates bad faith in this “witch hunt” organized by the U.S. government … Will he announce soon the new domain? The country that dares to manage dealing with American interests? Time will tell.
