Mega's Executive Chairman is one of the people who helped write the draft version of Chat Control

Mega recently got added to the list of information distribution organizers (the list of russian FSB lapdogs par to VK,, Yandex or Aeroflot) that are obligated to give the FSB direct access to their data under the threat of blocking or heavy fines.

It’s still not clear if it was two-way decision or not, but in the light of that, Mega’s top executive getting involved in regulation stomping E2E encryption really looks very ominous.

And i’m not saying that Mega is fishy, maybe he tried to negotiate the terms for the good of E2EE, but it’s certainly not looking good for Mega’s E2EE future.
