(AP) Indicted Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom has launched a new file-sharing website in a defiant move against the U.S. prosecutors who accuse him of facilitating massive online piracy.


The colorful entrepreneur unveiled the Mega site ahead of a lavish gala and press conference planned at his New Zealand mansion on Sunday night. It comes on the one-year anniversary of his arrest on racketeering charges related to his now-shuttered Megaupload file-sharing site. Megaupload was one of the most popular sites on the web until U.S. prosecutors shut it down, accusing Dotcom and several company officials of facilitating millions of illegal downloads.


Prosecutors are trying to extradite Dotcom from New Zealand to the U.S.


Dotcom argues that he can't be held responsible for copyright infringement committed by others.
