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.
