Dotcom: We've hit the jackpot

NZ Herald - A fresh legal bid to throw out the case against Kim Dotcom in the United States is being made after claims of an FBI double-cross.

Evidence has emerged showing the Department of Homeland Security served a search warrant on Mr Dotcom's file-sharing company Megaupload in 2010 which he claims forced it to preserve pirated movies found in an unrelated piracy investigation. (Culture, Kim Dotcom, MegaUpload)

You know, I don't think he should be in trouble for hosting a file sharing site that some people abuse.

But having read about his background....I'm not exactly cheering him on. He made a LOT of money with fraud, theft, etc.

Of course, I don't want to see it become a precedent for file sharing website hosts to get into trouble, either.

It's like watching Satan trying to convict Hitler of aiding robbery by opening the door for the robber on his way out of the bank.....it's not his worst crime, nor should that thing be considered a crime when he didn't know about and/or cause the robbery.

Don't forget, it's not only about the copyright. There was a fairly significant money laundering operation using Megaupload as a front from what they've alleged.

Personally, I think he should have done time for that 1.5 million euros he defrauded investors of with stock fraud and insider trading. If a guy robbed a bank and stole 10,000 bucks, you could be assured he'd serve some time behind bars. A white guy commits fraud and steals a million and a half euros, is convicted and serves no jail time but what he got awaiting trial? Come on. Can't believe so many defend this career criminal. He's been stealing since he was a teen and never let up. We're to believe he's legit now? Please.
