Megaupload boss Kim Dotcom heads to U.S. to answer piracy charges

megaupload logoKim Dotcom, the Internet mogul who is the main “star” of a US investigation which concerns online piracy and fraud charges, mentioned that he was willing to make his way to the US in order to maintain his good name and clear whatever outstanding charges there are against him – with a little bit of help from some of the brightest legal minds his money can buy, of course. Upon doing so, this would mean he would forego a pending extradition hearing in New Zealand.

Kim Dotcom’s claim to fame would be to be the founder of the Megaupload file-sharing site, where he has challenged the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation to run a fair trial, touting that he has the cojones to meet them in the court, assuming they agreed to select conditions.

Kim posted on Twitter, “We want bail, funds unfrozen for lawyers & living expenses.” Do you think Kim and his team of legal eagles will stand a chance in the court of law?
