WELLINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. authorities have lost a motion to have cyber fugitive Kim Dotcom remanded in custody in New Zealand before his extradition hearing to face internet piracy charges in the United States. An Auckland court on Monday rejected allegations that Dotcom, the founder of the Megaupload online file storage site, was a flight risk and had broken the terms of his bail conditions imposed after flamboyant internet entrepreneur was arrested by U.S. and New Zealand authorities in early 2012. ...

Warner Brothers has struck out vigorously at criticism of their denial that the movie company was involved in a plot involving the Prime Minister of New Zealand to bring the master hacker and criminal Kim Dotcom to America by rendition. The criticism relates to the statement of denial originally issued by Warner Brothers being "anonymous" - attributed only to the company with no actual person accepting ownership of the statement. That was just an oversight, Vice President in Charge of Public Relations, Elmer Fudd, said earlier today. He went on to point out that the statement was actually issued by Warner Brothers' CEO, Bugs Bunny and that the company stood by it implicitly. Yosemite Sam, Warner Bros. Director of Corporate Affairs, agreed, issuing his own statement that while Warner Brothers did nothing other than come to New Zealand to extort $40 million or so from the NZ taxpayer, a trifling amount in real currency, it was essential that Dotcom be brought to the US as soon as possible to face the conseq ...

Dot Com's Internet Party: "Mitchell said the Internet party aimed to appeal to the 800,000 eligible New Zealand voters who did not vote or who had stopped voting." Translation: Our party will appeal to the uninvolved, the self involved, the unmotivated, the ignorant, and the lazy. The party was targeting voters who shared the party's vision of a ''big techy economy'', Mitchell said. Translation: We will appeal to freeloaders, moochers, deadbeats and thieves. If that seems harsh, can someone, anyone out there make a convincing argument that Kim DotCom has done anything but exploit a legal loophole (DMCA) to profit from the sweat of others? That's a Dis-economy. The fool was too greedy to play by the rules though and his knowing participation in mass Copyright Infringement will hopefully put him out of our collective national misery sooner rather than later.

Podcast between Tom Roads and Kim Dotkom; entrepreneur, currently residing in New Zealand. He is the founder of Megaupload and its associated websites, as well as Megaupload's successor site, Mega. What makes Kim controversial is the fact that the American government is actively trying to extradite him from New Zealand to the US. American comedian Tom Rhodes wanted to meet this enigmatic maverick of modern technology and show the human side of this public figure who is so often demonized in the mass media. Recorded on the last day that Tom was in the country for the New Zealand International Comedy Festival. Kim & Tom are instantly united by their humor and a very honest open conversation about everything of relevance pertaining to Kim Dotcom is raised and discussed openly. Sources of news clips can be found on YouTube. Steve Wozniak, co founder of Apple, gives an interview where he defends Kim's actions and ways of doing business.

Kim Dotcom tries to makes primes Minister John Key sweat and John Banks think Kim Dotcom is to fat to be the new Prime Minister of New Zealand. Than the worlds laughs.
Love the civilian news paper, the best truth around, check out the last paragraph! Prime Minister John Key has told an anxious New Zealand public that if they don’t want to be spied on by the Government Communications Security Bureau, then all they need to do is hide under a blanket. At a select committee hearing on a new bill to redefine the powers of the GCSB to allow it greater flexibility in conducting surveillance, Key told submitters – including internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom – that he felt they were spreading misinformation about the bill, and that the expansion of powers “isn’t that bad,” because the Government still can’t get a camera “up on underneath your pants or whatever.” “Look, you’re wrong, actually,” said Key to civil liberties campaigner Thomas Beagle. “You’re suggesting that, under this bill, New Zealanders would just have to accept being watched all hours of the day, right?” “Well, obviously not as an absolute,” replied Beagle. “But in a general se ...
Hands up those who witnessed the meeting between Kim Dotcom and the PM John Key in Parliament's committee rooms. If Dotcom is correct in his claims that John Key lied to New Zealand, and can prove this, surely this would be the end of John Key?
After seeing Kim Dotcom and John Key on the news last night about that whole spying thing. I don't want these two legends to settle this in court. I want them to settle this at a food court. Imagine that, the Jolly German against the Right Honourable Prime Minister of New Zealand battling it out eating as many cheeseburgers as they can in fifteen minutes. I think the Justice Department really need to take my idea on board to revolutionise the future of New Zealand Justice. It would make programs like Judge Judy much more watchable if it was an eating contest, and the loser gets thrown in jail for doing wrong.

Is the World feeling betrayed by the US spying and lying program? Megaupload Judge Steps Down After Declaring U.S. ‘the Enemy’ By David Kravets07.18.123:32 PM Kim Dotcom. The New Zealand judge overseeing the extradition proceedings of accused file-sharing kingpin and Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom is recusing himself from the case after making a public remark that the United States was “the enemy.” Auckland District Judge David Harvey was commenting at a copyright conference earlier this month when he said, “We have met the enemy, and he is (the) U.S.”
The New Zealand Prime Minister, John Key, is "going out of way to destroy" Kim Dotcom and the major New Zealand business, Mega. I was once a supporter of John Key. No longer. I see John Key's allegiances as being not to New Zealanders but to the paranoid schizophrenic US Government and the corrupt Hollywood infotainment industry. Don't let John Key open the backdoor for the AmeriKans to change our laws, as he opens the backdoor of his house in Hawaii to his AmeriKan visitors.

The Internet entrepreneur turned folk hero was a humorous, well-spoken and imposing presence even from his home in New Zealand. More than anything, Dotcom was defiant over the hour-long question and answer period. "I will never be in a prison in the U.S. I can guarantee that," he told a crowd of hundreds gathered in Austin's Long Center. It was an impressive crowd considering the venue's distance -- nearly a mile -- from the Convention Center that hosts most convention panels and keynotes.

Dotcom says new site legal, no revenge for Megaupload saga AUCKLAND (Reuters) - Kim Dotcom, founder of outlawed file-sharing website Megaupload, said his new "cyberlocker" was not revenge on U.S. authorities who planned a raid on his home, closed Megaupload and charged him with online piracy for which he faces jail if found guilty. Dotcom said his new offering, Mega.co.nz, which will launch on Sunday even as he and three colleagues await extradition from New Zealand to the United States, complied with the law and warned that attempts to take it down would be futile. "This is not some kind of finger to the U.S. government or to Hollywood," Dotcom told Reuters at his sprawling estate in the bucolic hills of Coatesville, just outside Auckland, New Zealand, a country known more for sheep, rugby and the Hobbit than flamboyant tech tycoons. "Legally, there's just nothing there that could be used to shut us down. This site is just as legitimate and has the right to exist as Dropbox, Boxnet and other competitors, ...

German-born former hacker says his eyes have been opened to US tactics after his Megaupload site was shut down last year In massive, swaggering capital letters, "Mega" stretches across the grassy slope in front of Dotcom Mansion.

Kim Dotcom now plans to give New Zealand free broadband pipe to US via Sean Gallagher
Kim Dotcom has told the world he wants to get into the submarine cable business. Dotcom’s plan is to revive a company called Pacific Fibre that, as we reported last August, wanted to build a USA-to-New Zealand cable, but sank for lack of funds. New Zealand has few submarine cables connections to the world, which keeps the cost of landed data high and therefore means local internet service providers charge prices that seem less-than-generous compared to ISPs in other parts of the world. Those costs are also presumably bad news for Dotcom’s new venture, me.ga, as it will ship an awful lot of data to and from the land of the long white cloud.

The world's most powerful spies are believed to have met in Wellington just two days before Prime Minister John Key announced an inquiry into illegal snooping on Kim Dotcom. The intelligence alliance of the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand - known as Five Eyes - regularly meets across the globe. The Dominion Post understands the agencies met on the weekend of September 15 and 16. Mr Key was in Auckland meeting US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta that weekend. ...for those unaware, Nicky Hager exposed NZ's involvement in the Echelon spy network in his first book, Secret Power - New Zealand's Role in the International Spy Network - it shows how we allow the NSA through the GCSB to effectively spy on whomever they like whenever they like.

Under US pressure, foreign governments are shutting down foreign data-sharing Websites which (1) do not violate their own laws, and (2) do not host content directly, or by direct link, thereby not violating US laws, and are sending their own nationals to the US via extradition to be tried on criminal charges of Copyright Infringement. The raid on Kim Dotcom's mansion in New Zealand involved 2 armed helicopters and 76 policemen in body armor with assault rifles. Demonoid was just shut down by the Ukrainian authorities as a "gift" to the United States; the Site was not in violation of Ukrainian law.

Megaupload has no rights? US broke its own rules by going after Internet giant More than four months after federal agents shut-down the file-sharing service Megaupload and ordered a raid on the New Zealand mansion of its founder Kim Dotcom, attorneys are asking a US court to dismiss the case against the website. Ira Rothken, the California-based attorney of both Megaupload.com and Dotcom, is calling for a US federal court in Virginia to dismiss the criminal case against the website. According to Rothken, the website’s Fifth Amendment rights were violated when the FBI ordered for Megaupload to be taken off the Internet earlier this year. As a result of the agency’s demands, Megaupload’s servers were seized and millions of files uploaded to the website — including those owned by paying subscribers — were made unavailable and are still inaccessible today. Now Rothken says that the prosecutors in the case failed to guarantee Due Process for his clients and is asking the court to dismiss the charges. ...

Political round-up: Banks and Dotcom By Bryce Edwards NZ Herald Monday Apr 30, 2012 Something is rotten in the state of New Zealand politics. That at least will be the public's verdict on the latest political finance scandal involving government minister John Banks and his extremely dodgy, if not illegal, campaign finance practices. This scandal therefore has the potential to have a significant impact on politics in this country. It will reinforce to the public the grubby and deceitful character of politics, and increase their suspicions about the probity of relationships and money between politicians and the wealthy. Many voters already believe that politicians, parties and governments aren't to be trusted, and this scandal will do little to change their minds. The Banks/Dotcom scandal is such an explosive one that it's already being reported internationally - see, for example, the coverage in Britain Guardian newspaper: Kim Dotcom donation claims rock New Zealand coalition. The story broke, first, on TV ...
