Kim Dotcom

Dotcom pinged for ripping off his staff

Get used to Orange fatty

When I first heard about this case I was shocked, I actually called a unionist called Matt McCarten to see if he would help them out.

He refused. Little did I know the reason why he refused to help these poor workers dudded by Kim Dotcom…because he was donkey deep involved in planning Dirty Politics at the time. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Now the Employment Relations Authority has found that Dotcom did rip off his workers.

Kim Dotcom has been ordered to pay more than $33,000 in lost wages and compensation to former staff.

A ruling released by the Employment Relations Authority on Monday has upheld complaints from two of the internet mogul’s former employees that they were unfairly dismissed.   Read more »

Everyone except Blind Freddy and David Fisher knows it was fake

Get used to Orange fatty

The SFO has released details of their investigation into Dotcom’s fake email he tried to shill to media before the last election.

The email which Kim Dotcom claimed was proof of a conspiracy against him is a forgery, the Serious Fraud Office has said.

The Herald can today report for the first time that the SFO investigated the email, which emerged on the eve of the 2014 election claiming then-Prime Minister John Key was involved in a conspiracy to get Dotcom.   Read more »

UPDATED: Socialists and their Political Sugar Daddies

Marxists, Socialists and Left-wingers consistently hate successful, capitalist businessmen and attack them as heartless parasites of the working man who are, greedy and privileged white men UNLESS they are their Political Sugar Daddies.

Becoming a Sugar Daddy to lefties seems to magically remove all stains from a wealthy man’s character. Let’s have a look at two famous Sugar Daddies.

Nostalgia

I was just digging through some old posts and thought these would be fun to look back on, given that we are roughly in the same stage of the election cycle three years on.

Not even $5m was enough to get people to betray their country and fellow Kiwis to help out Kim.   Read more »

Independent legal opinion on the Dotcom decision

Author Nicky Hager holding the proof of having created a commercial product from my property.

Rick Shera writes

Apart from the overall decision itself that the appellants are eligible for extradition, a few very interesting things that leapt out:

  • We’re already starting to see the impact of the Supreme Court’s decision in Dixon (Dixon v R [2015] NZSC 147), that digital files are property. With that finding in hand, it now becomes a simple matter to find that “property”, when referred to in any provision of the Crimes Act, refers to digital material. So, in Dotcom, the High Court finds that the there would be a prima facie case under New Zealand law that the appellants have obtained property (the alleged infringing copies of films) by deception under section 240 of the Crimes Act 1961 and therefore that that provides a “pathway” for extradition. One wonders how long it will be before we see a civil action for conversion of digital files.

Digital files being property will be very useful in any future legal encounters where I get to question Mr Hager on the use of stolen property.   And then making money from it.   Read more »

Get used to wearing orange, fatty

Bye, bye Fatty, been a pleasure knowing you, not.

Kim Dotcom can be extradited. Next stop Leavenworth, stainless steel jewellery and an orange boiler suit.

Kim Dotcom and his three co-accused are eligible for extradition to the US, the High Court has ruled in a decision just released.

The US Government has been seeking to extradite Dotcom, Mathias Ortmann, Bram van der Kolk and Finn Batato to face trial on 13 counts, including allegations of conspiracy to commit racketeering; copyright infringement; money laundering and wire fraud since 2012.

In the High Court finding released today, Justice Murray Gilbert upheld a decision by the District Court that there were grounds for the quartet to be extradited,   Read more »

Has National been hacked, will there be a book and will it influence the election?

screenshot-whale oil

Rumours are not facts and at the moment all I can write about are rumours. Kim Dotcom has stated that the National Party has been hacked and that there is a huge amount of stolen information available but we only have his word for it. If his claim is true will Nicky Hager be in bed with the hacker once again and will he use stolen information to release another politically timed book? If he does will it be from a second hack or will it be new information from the original hack that Rawshark has now given him? Everyone has assumed that only Whaleoil was hacked because the book focussed on us but everyone must remember that Hager thought we could be used to bring down the National government. Also, Hager could only write his book based on the selective information that Rawshark chose to release to him.

John Banks back in court

Former Auckland mayor and MP John Banks is chasing $190,000 in costs for his wrongful conviction and acquittal for filing a false electoral return.

At a Court of Appeal hearing in Auckland on Wednesday afternoon, a panel of three judges heard Bank’s lawyer argue why a High Court decision not to award his client $190,000 in costs should be overturned.

David Jones QC alleged Banks’ original trial judge, Justice Edwin Wylie, had been “duped” by fabricated evidence given by Kim Dotcom and his team. Read more »

Dotcom says he could have proved the Moment of Truth, but decided not to

Laila Harre has popped up in the news giving tame interviews to friendly journos to try and do some image repair after her high profile crash-n-burn with Dotcom’s Internet party.  Apparently, the “Moment of Truth” email was genuine, but Dotcom held critical information back.

Yeah, really!

The Herald approached Dotcom on the issue [yesterday], receiving an emailed response. He said: “I’m 100% sure that the email is genuine. Unfortunately it was leaked without headers.

“My lawyers advised me against using it at the Moment of Truth. They suggested to use the courts, at the appropriate time, to seek discovery and depositions.”

He said it had been difficult to get all the discovery which he believed was necessary for his case and was hoping to address that in a case before the Human Rights Tribunal shortly.

The so-called email was dated October 27, 2010 and was purported to be from Warner Brothers chairman and chief executive Kevin Tsujihara. The content of the so-called email claimed it had been sent to a senior executive at the Motion Picture Association of America – the lobby group for the Hollywood studios. Read more »

Fatty’s latest scheme flops at launch

Fatty Boomsticks has run to his favourite tame reporter to spin the failure of his latest venture.

David “Anal” Fisher tries his best but the stench of failure is emanating from Dotcom’s fat arse.

Kim Dotcom’s launch of his latest venture has hit a last-minute problem, aborting its launch on the fifth anniversary of the FBI-inspired raid which saw the entrepreneur arrested.

The reason for the stall is unknown but it came with less than 90 minutes before it was due to launch.

Dotcom had forecast the new online storage and payment system would be worth billions of dollars.

But after forecasting the imminent launch about 5am today, Dotcom posted to Twitter: ‘Sorry but there has been an expected hiccup. Will tell you all about it later today. Let this play out and give me some time to update you.’

…When the Herald asked early afternoon, Dotcom emailed to say: ‘We hit a roadblock today…

‘We are working on it and I can’t comment on what happened yet.
