Megaupload Founder Announces New Music Service
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 09.11.2013



The founder of the controversial upload site Megaupload has announced a new music service titled Baboon. Torrent Freak reports that Kim Dotcom, who is facing a copyright battle over Megaupload following its shutdown by the Department of Justice in January 2012, has revealed details on the music service that he is pitching to artists promising "more freedom, transparency and control" than other services.

Dotcom said that he is prepping the service for a public launch under the new name; it was previously called Megabox and its domain was among those seized by the government. Dotcom says that he has secured several millions of dollars in funding and has twenty-two developers currently working on it. Dotcom revealed that Baboom will be operated by a company owned by him.

"I am really excited about Baboom. I can't wait for artists to see what i have created for them. Their entire career can be managed on Baboom. Artists never had more freedom, transparency and control," he said. He noted that he has several several "top artists" lined up for the launch.

Dotcom stepped down from Megaupload's successor Mega, which was founded in January of this year as a successor to Megaupload.
