criminal copyright infringement. Since then he has been the topic of
enormous controversy and still maintains his innocence. Today, the video
of the New Zealand Police military style raid of Kim Dotcom’s mansion
has been released for the world to see. The video of the Kim Dotcom raid
shows an intense and well organized military-style operation that
included semi-automatic weapons and helicopters

  • Anyone up for a world wide class action law suit against the FBI, MPAA and RIAA so we can get our data back stored on the servers they seized?

    I personally had lots of LEGAL files stored there which I have lost.

  • The point was to scare people that they know full well they will never stop. Filesharers, fileservers, and by extension, even sites like these that operate outside the norm and outside their control. Cut off one head, two more shall rise.

    • @kajidono Impressive and Pathetic at the same time! They have failed the War On Drugs and most importantly - they have failed the War On Money Laundering: no one is brave enough to point out the biggest threat to humanity today, the so-called OFFSHORE BANKING and it's 2-5 trillion dollar yearly money laundering "budget"
      These are just nickels and dimes...

    • @kajidono If i'll rate the EFFORT in our so-called War On Drugs, on a scale from 1 to 100, i'll give 25.
      The fact that we have millions of people in jails because of drug offences adds some points to their EFFORT but it also subtracts points too because what they lack is the effectiveness of their tactics against the Big Players - big dope dealers and the system of money laundering. No one really wants to touch the banking industry and no one wants to address the issue of corruption in foreign a More..

  • The New Zealand government should be ashamed of themselves. Nothing more than American arse licking shills.

    Fat guy, no criminal past, wanted for copyright infringement - requires a couple cops

    • @Hiarken Yeah but megaupload wasn't P2P. P2P they really can't stomp out because it's decentralized. If torrents can't be distributed on the web freely than I can see the transition made to an application like TOR and pseudo-domains that the program makes use of.

  • I like how the threat level was low, so they didnt bring ballistic vests and frag grenades. They only brought a few teams of special police with assault rifles, some spare mags and some dogs. I bet they had 100 bullets for each person in the mansion.

  • He has more money to throw at lawyers to keep him out of gaol. He will win. And soon Mega Upload 2.0 will be on Chinese servers, without the extradition of the world police of the USA. Why the FBI needs to defend Hollywood is a waste of money and manpower. Chase the real scum of this earth like drug narcos and organised crime syndicates. Not a nerd with a computer. Hope he wins. Hope he comes back stronger.

  • What's so fascinating to me is the sheer political power displayed by the music and film industry, et al. He may or may not be clean, but it's not like he was a drug kingpin or Mafioso.

    His crime that merited this military raid is getting(very)rich by facilitating the distribution of copyrighted material. A concept that may be noble for deserving artists, but still sort of a weird construct from recent history.

  • It's funny. In many justice systems around the world pedophiles and child molesters will get 10 or so years in prison, but people who distribute copyrighted material face the possibility of serving twenty or more. How is it possible that a movie is more valuable than a human life?
