Kim Dotcom Appeal
February 27, 2012 by staff
Kim Dotcom Appeal, Kim Dotcom is due to appear in Auckland High Court tomorrow morning as representatives of the US government appeal a ruling that set the Megaupload founder free on bail last week.
Dotcom was granted bail on the conditions that he wear an electronic monitoring bracelet, stay at his rented mansion outside of Auckland and not access the internet.
Megaupload, a now-defunct file-sharing website, was targeted by the entertainment industry and law enforcement for its alleged trade in content without permission of copyright owners as well as allegedly reproducing material from websites such as YouTube.
Dotcom was initially denied bail on January 25 after being deemed a flight risk due to his wealth and also because he holds German and Finnish passports. The ruling was upheld on February 3 after Dotcom appealed.
Dotcom filed a new application for bail in a District Court, arguing last week that all of his bank accounts had been frozen by law enforcement and he had little incentive to flee given that his three kids and wife, who is pregnant with twins, are still in New Zealand.
