After all that? But more specifically, after the entire MegaUpload site, data and related businesses were totally destroyed?
- United States district court judge Liam O'Grady, according to comments just published by the New Zealand Herald.
The reason is another procedural gaffe by the FBI, but this time, it could bury the entire case and give the United States Government a huge black eye. Specifically, MegaUpload attorney Ira Rothken is raising the question of whether the FBI actually had the authority to pursue this criminal matter overseas. O'Grady is taking notice of the jurisdictional problem.
Which means, there's a distinct possibility that MegaUpload was destroyed without a fair trial, using improper procedures, and with irreversible damage. And that includes any plans for an IPO, expansion, or reasonable defense.
All of which has MegaUpload Kim Dotcom seething over potentially mafia-like, corrupt practices by the US government. "The US government has terminated Megaupload, Megavideo and 10 other subsidiaries, including a company called N1 Limited that was developing a clothing line," Dotcom told TorrentFreak. "They destroyed 220 jobs. Millions of legitimate Mega users have no access to their files... the damage can never be repaired."

The Assistant US Attorney who brought this indictment, Neil H. Macbride, came to that position from his former job at the Business Software Alliance.

It is always hard to see the guilty guy walk free. Didn't work out to well for OJ in the end.
It will be fascinatiing to see how this all plays out.

And everyone in tech is talking about young entrepreneurs chasing the Instgram dream. There'll be many more chasing this model also. If this gets kicked out of court then the music business is screwed!!

It is hilarious to read the neonazi Kim Dotcom persona talking about "copyright extremists". He can't even visit his hometown in Germany, because there is a price for his head for the hate crimes his gang commited back when the German police used him as an informant.
