Kim Dotcom, the founder of now defunct cloud storage/streaming service Megaupload, announced today that he’s suing the New Zealand government for illegally spying on him and raiding his home in 2012.
A New Zealand court granted Dotcom’s legal team access to all the evidence seized by police in that illegal raid way back in early 2012 that followed an also-illegal government surveillance campaign.
Kim Dotcom is leading the Time100 poll, which attempts to track the top leaders, artists, and innovators in the world. Being Kim Dotcom, he’s not one to be silent about it.
Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom’s new service Mega launched to a limited number of users today, revealing pricing tiers and features for the first time.
It seems that Kim Dotcom is already having problems with the next version of his Megaupload site, Me.ga.
Fresh off rebranding his defunct MegaUpload service as a sparkling new file-sharing service called Me.ga — yes that’s Mega, but it’s also ME dot GA — Dotcom now wants to help build a new fat pipe to online content in the U.S.
Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom is a man who feeds off attention. Maybe it’s time to stop giving it to him.
The wheels of justice may grind slowly, but they do grind. Who they grind, of course, is another matter.
Government officials have Megaupload founder and accused money-launderer Kim Dotcom right where they want him — locked up in New Zealand awaiting an extradition hearing — but that’s not stopping them from kicking the Internet mogul while he’s down.
The hosting companies that stored the files from Megaupload users’ digital lockers, Carpathia Hosting and Cogent Communications Group, have decided not to delete that data from its servers — at least temporarily.
