Despite the fact that Kim Dotcom, the founder of infamous MegaUpload website, still remains under house arrest and is awaiting the extradition decision, the authorities of New Zealand have reinstated his Internet privileges, which brought the individual behind major file-hosting service back online.
Originally, the police of New Zealand, where Kim Dotcom resides, have granted him bail under a number of conditions. One of the conditions stated that Kim Dotcom was forbidden to use the web. Currently, the prosecutors of the United States are doing their best to extradite MegaUpload’s founder for racketeering and for facilitating copyright violation on mass scale.
However, Judge David Harvey announced this past Monday that Kim Dotcom’s behavior since his arrest has been “exemplary”. That’s why he took the decision to grant MegaUpload’s founder the right to go back online. Aside from the permission to use the Internet, Dotcom is now allowed to swim once a day and travel to an Auckland studio to record music twice a week. Moreover, Kim is even allowed to meet once a week with his fellows from MegaUpload.
Everything points at the fact that Kim Dotcom is on the right track. Thus far, nobody knows what other surprises local authorities can prepare for Kim Dotcom and the US prosecutors. Anyway, the 20th of August is expected to be a crucial day for MegaUpload’s owner, because he risks twenty years in prison if the efforts of the authorities of the United States to extradite him prove to be successful. Now the US prosecutors aren’t happy with the judge’s decision to grant Dotcom the right to surf the web, because he can continue his illegal activity.

|another 1 month; they'll leave him..MU will be back online. what else we need..cheers..lol|
|If I remember my history lessons, British ships arrived at Botany Bay in January 1788 to establish a penal colony. So now, we're mad at people from this area for breaking the law? I'd say I have to blame the Brits for Kim Dotcoms actions. If they would not have sent prisoners here to begin with then the world would be a much better place (I'm being totally facetious). I'm tired of all the hype about file sharing. It's sharing, not theft!! People need to stop being so dang greedy...|

|wtf a possible 20 years even if he is guilty witch he is not he didn't murder anyone|
A murderer tends to get much less time than 20 years in many 1st world countries.

|guess i'll just have to go to youtube now and download all the stuff now|
|OpenMinder your complete ignorance is rivaled only by that of menahunie! You continually to speak of things you have no idea about. Go back to TPB and SHUT THE FÙCK UP|
|@ PuffTheMagicCrackPipe: You seem to be in a serious session of your name-sake, and offer nothing of validity to counter any information, facts and figures presented by either myself or menahunie, and seem focused only on personal attack and demeaning of posters who (hopefully) offer intelligent comments and opinions.|
To touch on the "...complete ignorance..." aspect, thank you for highlighting the obviousness of the fact that what you wrote really sums up your own posting(s), and therefore your own complete ignorance.
To offer a rebuttal without any salient form of argumentative or contrary information, facts or knowledge of any sort speaks to the arid wasteland that must be your mind, and in no way acknowledges nor expresses any sort of intelligent thought on your part.
In other words, we are all dumber for having read what you have wrote, and all (including yourself) have lost the time it took to read your posting, never to get that time back.
What a waste, and what a shame you couldn't bring anything enlightening or intelligent to the table.
Way to show your class.
|LOL You're so intelligent and gifted yet you don't have anything better to do that troll torrent site articles. Way to show you never went to class.... get it? Noone gives a fûck about your pointless blabberings here, although I'm sure the rest of the boys around the fry maching at McDonalds are completely impressed with you.|
|Siighhh....yet another useless posting, PuffTheMagicCrackPipe, without a hint of focus on the article at hand.|
Well played, sir......well played.
Class is not about trying to be witty, it is about being.
Sadly, those such as yourself are like pigs who are never able to see what is above them, because they can't. Simply can not.
Thanks again for highlighting your ignorance: do you even know what a troll is, or what trolling means? Of course you do; it's you!
No need to be so vicious in your verbal attack(s), especially in (supposed to be) commenting on Dotcom's slowly returning "freedoms".
But, a dog can't change it's spots now, can it? Sure can lick it's balls though, huh.
|At least it didn't happen here in Italy.|
Here corrupt politicians, serial killers, rapists and the such initially get several years in prison, then they just keep condoning them over and over and within 6 months they're back on the street.
But they find one person (expecially an immigrant, yeah, so much racism) trying to sell pirated DVDs on the street, and they either sentence them to a decade or so or kick them back into a warzone.Sheesh, no wonder the hotel I work at is going bankrupt...

|PuffTheMagicCrackPipe, everything you said here was completely pointless...please post your dribble elsewhere (private message for example). It's true that in some countries people get a lot less then 20 years for murder.|
20 years for filesharing, only in the USSA.
|I agree with mystic8973. It's file sharing. Not theft. I also agree with Exar_Kun. The amount of prison time handed down by American courts for these type crimes is a crime in and of itself. I'm often ashamed to be and American...|
