UPDATE: Oh, No: Mygazines 2.0
Controversial filesharing site repositions self as legit digital mag vendor.
For all of you Mygazines completists out there, hereâ€™s an update. The siteâ€”launched last year as an illegal magazine firesharing site under the cover of darkness, only to settle with publishers and promptly foldâ€”is once again live.
This time, however, Mygazines appears to be abandoning the community model, and repositioning itself as a â€ślegitimateâ€ť digital publishing vendor (new tagline: â€śdigital publishing made easyâ€ť), offering three levels of turn-key services for publishers.
As Martin Ferro-Thomsen notes on his blog, the site now is now registered to something other than a post office box on the island of Anguilla:
Flyp Technologies Inc.
10 Bellair St. #1604
Toronto, Ontario m5r3t8
But stranger things have happened.
