Dotcom back on the net

NZ Herald

Kim Dotcom has been allowed back on the net. I have a feeling that Kim Dotcom is never going to be extradited, that he has plenty of evidence that is going to seriously embarrass the movie studios and recording studios and his case will lead to a worldwide revolt against their insistence at maintaining through legal coercion an old fashioned business model.

What I want to know is when US authorities are going to move against Yousendit and other similar systems that operate in exactly the same way?

Megaupload millionaire Kim Dotcom has been granted access to the internet, a swim every day and the chance to finish recording an album.

Dotcom and his three co-accused appeared in North Shore District Court this morning, all seeking variations to their bail conditions.

Dotcom, the founder of file-sharing website Megaupload, was arrested and locked up pending extradition to the United States after a police raid on January 20.

The 38-year-old and his associates, Mathias Ortmann, Bran van der Kolk and Finn Batato, are accused of breaching international copyright laws to the value of US$500 million.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
