Apparently, the judge is asking for more evidence to make a right decision on the question of what should happen to the data seized by the authorities from MegaUpload’s users. Fortunately, before making a final decision over the large amount of information that belongs to the former users of the cyberlocker MegaUpload, an American federal judge has requested more details in order to help him resolve the problem.
Actually, judge Liam O’Grady decided to hold another hearing in a bid to help him make a final decision because of The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), who filled a motion seven months ago on behalf of Kyle Goodwin. The latter is a sports reporter from Ohio, who wanted to get his content back, which he used to store on MegaUpload servers. The reporter lost all his content when the cyberlocker was closed down by the US authorities at the beginning of 2012 due to the charges of copyright violation.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has filled the motion to ask the judge to find a solution which could help people, who legitimately hold the rights to the content they had stored on the cyberlocker’s servers, get their data back. At the moment, all the files are still held by Carpathia Hosting, the MegaUpload’s hosting provider in the United States.
The attorneys of Kim Dotcom and his file-sharing portal have already spoken in favor of the files being returned to their legitimate owners. Now they are going to ask the court once again to allow a special appearance of the cyberlocker which would be relevant in determining the destiny of the content claimed to be legal. At the moment, there’s a motion before the court arguing that the United States doesn’t even have jurisdiction over the portal, because it was a Hong Kong based entity.

|whats there to reconsider? EVERY thing was STOLEN with illegal warrants. and again what does copyright violation got to do with any of this? every server that was stolen was intellectual property. in other words......they had zero rights to claim ANY of that data under copyright grounds as digital data is not truly copyrightable. IT MUST BE TANGIBLE to claim copyrights. *just because music and movies and games are presented on a CD/HDD medium does not mean its copyrightable*|
|I had all my homemade porn on there & I want my 2 minute of film back|
|Look its like this, most (not all) but most of the content on the site was pirated, we all know that same with extra here. so no matter how law enforcement got it legal,illegal, 90% is pirated.so therefore mega looses ...period!! i dont understand all the bitching everyone knows you run a site with pirated marital you run risk of law enforcement seizing your servers and content.price doing business and providing a service.|

|just looked in to copyright law again, and still YET AGAIN.....it has been changed to suite there needs. they are LYING to every one on true copyright law! don't listen to ANY of it.|
@alexanderlecard: I have read just about all the information as regards to the MU take down and still nothing points to infringement. yes the US CLAIMS this, but like a layer told me one time....WERE IS YOU PROOF? and yes I does to matter how law enforcement got things. you obviously don't know how real law enforcement works. regardless of infringement....if you are accused INCORRECTLY.....the the accuser is automatically in contempt. there for EVERYTHING must be redone to accurately accuse. and if infringement is the case....Y is ET,TPB,PublicHD,KA,YIFY and many other infringing p2p trackers STILL up and ruining? it almost sounds like you work for the entertainment industry.

|Clamo 'under copyright grounds as digital data is not truly copyrightable. IT MUST BE TANGIBLE to claim copyrights'|
'Under law, it is the photographer who will own copyright on any photos he/she has taken, with the following exceptions' and the exceptions are nothing to do with film vs digital capture.

|@skreamer: copyrights differ in EACH country, but they don't want it or people to think that way. BTW there is so must incorrect information floating around that NO ONE can give the correct answer on this. but it don't really matter any way as everything will soon FAIL.|

|iv always been a torrent and p2p Maniac, but iv never once used MegaUpload’ you just don't need to.|
|The question is simple,why does the world allow America to commit illegal acts of search and seizure at all,committing an illegal act of copyright infringement does not give America automatic rights to infringe civil liberty and due process with bogus warrants and government conspiracy's,it is really the pot calling the kettle black,the Australian government should not only apologise to Kim.com but return all evidence and pay compensation for the trauma and mental anguish inflicted by the authorities who carried out the search and seizure of his mansion,Cyber and the world Police need to know that digital media comes 2nd to human rights and the Law,fcuk corporate fascists who respect only the $$$$.|
|Demonoid suffered a similar fate but in their case the government just went in at Americas request and shut them down,so much for due process in certain countries.|
|again it may or may not be illegal how they got the info but we all know the material they got was pirated. stop crying we and all sites take a risk don't bitch now you got caught after the fact. and yes i know law enforcement IM a D.H.S. employee my statement stands.||
