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.
