Kim Dotcom has recently announced his plans to restart his file-sharing service. The US Department of Justice reacted quickly, claiming that if Kim furthers his plans he would violate the terms of his bail and face new criminal charges.
Of course, the news that Kim Dotcom is planning to introduce another alternative to the file-sharers didn’t make the entertainment industry and its legal guardians very happy. Department of Justice stated in a filing against Kim’s lawyers’ effort to dismiss the case against MegaUpload that Defense Counsel’s claim that the corporate defendant is able to and should be allowed to operate would undermine the sworn statements of MegaUpload’s founder that he doesn’t have any intention or ability to continue file-sharing operation or fund the businesses in the indictment during pendency of the extradition process.
The US pointed out that if Kim intentionally misled the New Zealand court about his plans and capabilities to get released from pre-extradition confinement, it might endanger his bail situation and subject him to additional criminal charges.
In the meantime, Kim’s announcement also came as a surprise for those who remember his statement about future business plans made this past January in New Zealand. He claimed that there was no realistic prospect or possibility to restart his file-sharing business because of the seizure of the requisite servers and data storage equipment, along with the seizure of all funds held both by the company and Dotcom personally. Kim added that it was likely that former MegaUpload users would consider any new iteration of the file-sharing service as unreliable, because it could again be subject to a further incident, with the American government taking action to shut it down and deprive users of having legitimate access to their content.
But now one of Dotcom’s lawyers stated that the US was simply attacking a technology before the full investigation, and not for the first time. They claim that Dotcom is innocent and entitled to be involved in both technology and business. It is quite interesting for many how this will eventually turn out and if Kim will manage to restart the same type of business that has already brought him both an empire and a heavy prosecution.

|All he has to do is post legitimate content and not violate copyright ,he did have some legitimate content and if he only pursue that course there is nothing really they could do except look foolish trying to shut him down after all bit torrent is a legitamate application it`s only the content that can be suspect|
|If they tried to stop all torrents unilaterally many companies and web sites of legitimate use like Linux downloads etc,sourceforge.net downloads etc who use bit torrent as a transport could sue for billions in lost revenues alone.|
|They only hurt themselvs in the long run ,bit torrenting and filesharing is a boon to the industry in so many ways,cams that are too grainy and with black sequences are not harming the industries but forcing people to want better and pay for dvd`s or to go watch it in cinemas,the release of a single makes people buy albums,so as a proven transport they should embrace it not try to manipulate it into one big Orwellian farce.|
