no it wasn't.



how do either of you know ?

because it's called "megaUPLOAD" and it's been extensively used for open source developers before it was widely known as a file sharing site.

When I was at court today my bail conditions didnt include the release of $30,000 of stolen money to see me through the next 3 weeks. I feel there may be a double standard for the rich criminals...

Anyone see the interview with him on Campbell Live tonight? He seemed pretty straight up to me.

Innocent until proven guilty, it's not stolen yet.

Innocent until proven guilty

if hes innocent until proven guilty why has he spent the last month in jail? The NZ justice system assumes you are guilty until you can prove your innocence

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/04/09/p ... pload-raid
Police reportedly agreed to let Megaupload’s IT expert download a copy of security camera footage stored on Dotcom’s personal file server, which was seized by police during the raid even though it was not among the evidence they claimed to be pursuing. But when Dotcom’s expert arrived at the police station recently, he discovered that the server had been “completely disassembled,” according to Ars Technica. Then officers reportedly refused to reassemble the server or provide any of the data contained therein, even after their previous agreement to release the footage.

That means evidence which could be key to Dotcom’s defense may be gone for good, and New Zealand authorities may ultimately avoid heightened scrutiny of their actions during the raid.

Fuck it sounds like Operation 8 all over again. Would be hilarious if the most or all of the case got dropped due to cops fucking up yet again.

https://torrentfreak.com/megaupload-trial-may-never-happen-judge-says-120420/

A US judge has put a bomb under the Megaupload case by informing the FBI that a trial in the United States may never happen. The cyberlocker was never formally served with the appropriate paperwork by the US authorities, as it is impossible to serve a foreign company with criminal charges.

Yes and no...they shut down the site with no trial, and the amount of shit Kim Dotcom has had to put up with will surely make others think twice about creating another site.

According to some judges comments he might not get any money back either. The comment essentially was "you don't have to be guilty for them to take all your assets". Pretty bullshit.

No he wasnt. People who uploaded shit to his sight that wasnt theirs are the criminals and they breached the user agreement on the site.

Youtube don't check user content, they remove it when copyright holders or other complain.
fairly standard practice for businesses that are based on user uploaded content.

And like j said, drive launched recently.
