MegaUpload Goes Down, Hacker Community Rises Up

January 23, 2012

As reported by EuroNet News on January 23, 2012:

“The founder of file-sharing website Megaupload remains in custody in New Zealand, although the German-born former hacker known as Kim Dotcom denies charges of Internet piracy and money laundering.

The US authorities say the accused made his colossal fortune by copying and distributing music, movies and other copyrighted content without authorisation. The FBI requested a raid on the 38-year-old’s Auckland mansion on Friday.”

Watch actual video of Dotcom’s perp walk (did you catch that name??) EuroNet coverage of this case
