Dotcom: Mediaworks pulls plug on ads
WILLIAM MACE AND TOM PULLAR-STRECKER
Kim Dotcom says Mediaworks has cancelled radio advertisements for his new Mega file-locker service.
Dotcom tweeted that it appeared some music labels had complained to Mediaworks about the advertisements, resulting in the booking for more than 500 advertisements being terminated.
Mega is due to be launched on Sunday, the anniversary of Dotcom's arrest on copyright and racketeering charges.
Mediaworks sales manager Matt Headland would not confirm that the campaign had been cut from the company's schedules and refused to comment further.
