In another video, Making of Megabox [below], Dotcom has highlighted some of the features of Megabox, which he has dubbed as a revolutionary music platform. From the video it looks like the Megaupload founder has managed to rope in famous artists like “The Black Keys,” “Rusko,” “Two Fingers” and “Will.i.am” as exclusive artists but, there is no confirmation from the artists as yet.
Dotcom believes that Megaupload will be back before the end of 2012 while he and his team are working towards a public release of Megabox. The main goal of the new ‘revolutionary’ music platform according to Dotcom is to enable users to have access to free music while compensating artists through advertising revenues notes TorrentFreak. Kim believes that this particular model of distributing music hold the key to decrease online music piracy while keeping users as well as artists happy.
