The man who created Megaupload got insanely rich via morally dubious means. So it’s pretty amazing that the new documentary about the German-born hacker-turned-millionaire generates any sympathy. But it does, by sketching out an easy-to-swallow narrative alleging that powerful corporate and government forces…
Remember Kim Dotcom? He’s the convicted fraudster-turned rich dude who ran MegaUpload, that file storage website that hosted a ton of pirated content. In January 2012, Dotcom was raided by New Zealand authorities and he’s been in legal purgatory ever since. Right now, Dotcom is fighting extradition by the United…
A court in New Zealand has judged that Kim Dotcom can be extradited to the U.S., where he could face trial over huge copyright infringements speculated to have cost music and movie companies in the region of $500m.
The long-delayed extradition hearing of Kim Dotcom has begun in Auckland, New Zealand. It’s expected to last weeks, as he battles against claims from U.S. authorities that he cost cost music and movie companies over $500m.
The last time we left Kim Dotcom, he was busy poising himself as "Hilary's worst nightmare in 2016" with a brand new pretend political party, the Internet Party. Now, our future President Dotcom is busy rambling to his eventual constituents on Twitter about starting his very own Internet. You know, just as soon as he…
PlayStation Network and Xbox Live are still repeatedly going offline and experiencing problems, so if you're itching to try out a new Christmas gift game, you may have to wait.
Kim Dotcom may be down on his luck, be he's certainly not out. The the German-Finnish Internet entrepreneur has now announced that he's bringing his Internet Party to the US next year.
Long time, no Kim Dotcom. Well, perhaps the reason the German-Finnish Internet entrepreneur has gone so quiet is because he's flat broke.
Kim Dotcom is probably the most wanted man in the movie theaters' fight against piracy. He's under investigation by the FBI, and they're trying to extradite him from sunny, safe New Zealand to the States. But those pale in comparison to his latest problem: his account on Mega, the cloud storage site he founded last…
Kim Dotcom has resigned as Director of Mega to focus on other projects, including a forthcoming music service—and, umm, his ongoing legal battles.
When the government came knocking becayse Edward Snowden used Lavabit's encrypted email service, it did the sensible thing and, uh, shut itself down. Other similar services have followed suit—and now Kim Doctcom plans to capture the market that's being left wide open.
There's finally a Mega app for Anroid available which is... well, quite a lot like Dropbox's, really. There are, apparently, iOS and Windows versions on the way, too.
If you had your heart set on getting back some of the data you had stored on Megaupload, now would be a good time to stop hoping. According to Kim Dotcom, petabytes of user data have already been deleted off old Megaupload servers. Thousands of pirated movies cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
The High Court of New Zealand just ruled that the FBI has to give slews of Kim Dotcom's digital property back to him. The agency—along with officials in New Zealand—screwed up pretty bad, indeed.
Not content to just launch an encrypted file-sharing site, get stranded in the middle of nowhere, or claim to have the patent for two-step authentication, Internet dude Kim Dotcom is also apparently coming out with an album of dance music? Yeah.
