Judge in Charge with MegaUpload Case Stepped Down

Judge in Charge with MegaUpload Case Stepped Down

As you remember, MegaUpload was closed down at the start of 2012, emerging in the headlines all over the globe. In the meantime, the founder of the service, Kim Dotcom, as well as his colleagues, was released on bail, and the cyberlocker’s owner is still awaiting the court’s decision in the extradition case.


Now the local media report that Judge David Harvey, overseeing Kim Dotcom’s extradition in the United States, has stepped down. First of all, the case was postponed until next March, and the judge expressed his opinion on the Trans-Pacific Partnership – a trade agreement whose goal is to help with piracy issues. One of its provisions focuses on DVDs region codes (this is what lets the media disk to work only in certain countries), which were developed to prevent digital piracy.

Meanwhile, the judge called the United States “the enemy” when it comes to tackling piracy matters abroad. He said that under Trans-Pacific Partnership and the American Digital Millennium copyright provisions it is prohibited to do that, and if someone does, they will be treated as a criminal. So, David Harvey concluded that “we have met the enemy and he is the United States”.

By the way, it was David Harvey who reinstated MegaUpload’s founder’s rights to use the web based on his good behavior, and let him pay a visit to a recording studio so that Kim Dotcom could finish his politically-oriented hip-hop album. At the moment, it is unclear who will be put in charge with the case and how the whole story will end, but the experts are on Dotcom’s side and are almost sure that he will win the case after all. But how many years will pass before this happens – no-one knows…

skreamer avatarUnfortunate. This guy seemed very open minded and even having much leniency toward Dotcom so far.

Seems his play on words (changing us to U.S. from "we have met the enemy and he is us") will have had the anti-infringement people in particular moving in the shadows to get this guy out of his position of power. And they won that one.

tonymengela avatarThe leniency is because the Judge knows that this whole case was Illegal in the first place. This whole sham was to get what was on those hard drives that were illegally taken. Am I the only that noticed that when the hard drives went so did the pressure?

skreamer avatarYeah but he's supposed to be seen to be impartial.

Anyways I hope Dotcom, if found innocent, sues the a$$ off his persecutors for loss of earnings. It would be sweet if the DoJ and crew had inflated the figures Dotcom's operations had caused to film/software etc producer's in an attempt to make a big deal of Megaupload's operations. And that Dotcom himself could then use the same figures as a basis for compensation. That would be so funny.

No avatarHe makes me proud to be from the country in question. He (Judge Harvey) is referring to the lack of respect coming from the position of the US in relation to other countries sovereign rights to apply law in principle with their democratic constitutions. It is a common theme of most "US" trade agreements, although this one, is being done in "secret". Dotcom could change the world from this place, who knows? You cannot kill an idea anyway, nice article..
