Kim Dotcom continues to waste court time with pointless appeals.

His appeal for the extradition decision will now be heard in August this year.

The appeal against the decision to extradite Kim Dotcom and his fellow Megaupload co-accused Mathias Ortmann, Bram van der Kolk and Finn Batato will be heard in August.

Do I look good in Orange?

Tick tock, we are now all waiting with bated breath.

The wheels of the justice system grind slowly, and occasionally slip a cog, but on the whole those who are willing to submit to the complete process get what they deserve.

A judge is set to deliver his decision on whether Kim Dotcom and his associates are eligible for extradition to face charges in the United States.

Tainted Fisher defends Dotcom, and gets it wrong

Fisher gagging on fatty German sausage again. ?It’s almost (b)romantic.

As Kim Dotcom waits for a judge to decide if he will be extradited to face criminal copyright charges, a former employee is walking out of jail after serving time on the FBI accusations the internet tycoon continues to deny.

Andrus Nomm had three years of anxiety over the charges resulting from the FBI operation against the filesharing business Megaupload.com. They were claims of a vast criminal copyright conspiracy operated through one of the world’s most popular websites.

Then, earlier this year, Nomm ended the waiting by cutting a deal with United States prosecutors. The result – a 366-day sentence (with an early parole), three years of supervision and a US$175 million judgment.

A database of federal prisoners has Nomm listed as due for release today.

A?database eh Tainty boy? ? Nothing beats on-the-spot intel. ?Whaleoil’s reporter who visited Nomm can confirm he isn’t due for release until next month. ? Read more »
