Paypal Cuts Off Mega Because It Actually Keeps Your Files Secret


MEGA has demons­tra­ted that it is as compliant with its legal obli­ga­tions as USA cloud storage services opera­ted by Google, Micro­soft, Apple, Drop­box, Box, Spide­roak etc, but PayPal has advi­sed that MEGA’s « unique encryp­tion model » presents an insur­moun­table diffi­culty.

And, this all goes back to this dange­rous effort by the White House a few years ago to set up these « volun­tary agree­ments » in which payment compa­nies would agree to cut off service to sites that the enter­tain­ment indus­try decla­red « bad. » There’s no due process. There’s no adju­di­ca­tion. There’s just one indus­try getting to declare websites it doesn’t like as « bad » and all payment compa­nies refu­sing to serve it. This seems like a pretty big problem.

Quand les proces­sus extra-judi­ciaires deviennent le moyen d’ac­tion de prin­cipe, que ce soit aux USA ou en France, l’État de droit est un loin­tain souve­nir.

Quand le chif­fre­ment de bout en bout motive de couper les vivres, nous avons à nous inquié­ter, quoi qu’on pense de Mega ou de son contenu.
