Mega Search Engines Have to Play by the Rules

Wow, it sounds like Kim Dotcom needs to get his own SWAT-style team together so they can do raids on copyright infringers that use the Mega logo without permission. wink

The above triggered Mega to force Mega-Search out of business, proactively. Mega justify their actions by pointing out that Mega-Search.me didn’t play by the rules. Firstly, it didn’t have its own takedown procedure but simply linked to Mega’s. And on top of that the site used Mega’s logo as well as a similar design which may lead the public to think that it was affiliated with Mega.

"We have had some emails from rightsholders that said ‘these guys don’t even have a takedown procedure, what are you doing about that?’ When we are faced with a situation like this, then we have to act," Dotcom told us.
