So Kim Dotcom claims he invented two-step authentication, which might sound kind of hilarious on its face … until you realize, oh, there’s actually a patent for it under his name … well, the one he used before he changed his last name to “Dotcom.” So there’s that.

This has definitely been our most well-received download. I don’t think any of us predicted it would be this much.
Defense Distributed-affiliated developer Haroon Khalid • Discussing the success of the controversial group’s 3D-printed gun blueprints, which have been downloaded 100,000 times since they were released over the weekend. The distribution method isn’t without controversy, either: The group’s files are being hosted on Kim Dotcom’s Mega service. One member of Congress, Rep. Steve Israel, wants to ban such devices.

Site is still overloaded. Massive demand. Incredible. I am so happy. Thank you for using ‪#Mega.
Kim Dotcom • Speaking on his return to the world of online file storage, exactly one year following a raid by U.S. authorities halted his previous enterprise, MegaUpload, on allegations of widespread piracy. Dotcom, to his end, denies that his new Mega.co.nz is a sort of revenge against the authorities that tried to stymie him last time: “This is not some kind of finger to the U.S. government or to Hollywood. Legally, there’s just nothing there that could be used to shut us down. This site is just as legitimate and has the right to exist as Dropbox, Boxnet and other competitors.” SOURCE

Kim Dotcom wants to bring faster download speeds to New Zealand

  • $330M the estimated construction cost of an underwater fiber-optic cable, stretching from the United States’ West Coast all the way to New Zealand, that Kim Dotcom would like to see completed in the near future. Development on the project was halted in August after adequate funding could not be raised by the original proposers. The Guardian reports that Mr. Dotcom hopes to fund the developments costs through a combination of his new company Mega, a number of outside investors, and using money he hopes to be awarded in lawsuits against US and NZ authorities. source

New Zealand court unfreezes more than $5 million in Dotcom assets

  • $800,000 released to cover rent on Kim Dotcom’s New Zealand mansion through the end of February 2013
  • $4.83M also released to cover Dotcom’s other expenses, including legal fees nearing the $250,000 mark source

» It ain’t easy being rich: Oh wait, clearly, it is. In addition to the $5 million unfrozen by the New Zealand court, Dotcom has also been given permission to sell nine luxury vehicles; most notably, a custom modified 2009 Mercedes E500 and 2008 Rolls Royce Coupe. All of this, of course, is separate from a court ruling earlier this month which also granted Mr. Dotcom with a monthly stipend of $48,300 for living expenses, medical expenses, and legal fees. Our hearts go out to Kim Dotcom. Sounds like he’s really suffering.

Video of Kim Dotcom raid revealed: Months after the raid of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom’s mansion in New Zealand, the raid continues to be under scrutiny. For the first time, New Zealand’s 3NEWS has revealed video showing what happened that day. A must-watch, especially considering this is a raid over a file-sharing network.

We have met the enemy, and he is (the) U.S.
Auckland, N.Z. District Judge David Harvey • Speaking at a conference on copyright earlier this month. The fact that Harvey said this is somewhat problematic, as he’s the judge overseeing the MegaUpload case. Hence, he’s decided to step down from the case, with the court’s chief judge, Jan-Marie Doogue, saying that Harvey’s statements “could reflect on his impartiality and that the appropriate response is for him to step down from the case.” Pretty much.
