It's really clever, if the government comes a knockin' on a data center or if someone hacks it, they'll get nothing. Dotcom says, "whatever is uploaded to the site, it is going to be remain closed and private without the key." Basically, the idea is that the law doesn't have a centralized entity to go after because they can't come after Mega because Mega has no idea what's on their servers. Dotcom believes that the only way that this could be illegal would be if the law made encryption illegal. Gizmoto
Anyone remember Kazaa? Gone now, but re-invented in another form.
To listen to songs through Megabox, users will have two options—purchasing the music through the service, or installing "Megakey" software onto their computer to listen for free. The Megakey software, as Dotcom explained to Torrentfreak, acts like ad-blocking software—except that it isn't. Megakey allows most advertisements to appear, but replaces about 15 percent of the ads served up by websites with ads hosted by Megabox.
"These new solutions will allow content creators to keep 90% of all earnings and generate significant income from the untapped market of free downloads,"

The new Intel Sandy Bridge chipsets have "Intel Insider" running on them which audits the media/music/software running across it to see if it's pirated. Which means Intel's chipset must connect secretly to a server somewhere's to check what you are running against what the Corporations have.
The new computers fix this little 'loophole' Dotcom is using.
Only use pre-2003 computers if you into this 'sharing' thingy.
he technology known as Intel Insider does one thing and one thing only. It protects movies delivered from service providers that are specifically using Intel Insider to protect their content. It has to be enabled on the service provider side. Consumers with Intel Insider enabled PCs will have access to content in higher resolution (1080P) and potentially earlier release.

So if we did not know it was on our server, it isnt illegal? I am not sure that it flies and if it does that loophole is going to be stuffed.
