Free on conditional bail, MegaUpload’s founder has managed to have a few restrictions lifted by New Zealand courts. He now has Internet access and is allowed to go to the recording studio...
Currently under conditional bail in New Zealand, MegaUpload’s founder is facing extradition to the United States, with the court case to determine his fate set for August. In the meantime, Kim Dotcom appears to be behaving in an exemplary manner.
New Zealand’s courts have agreed to a few liberties being added to Kim’s bail conditions. The man is once again allowed to have Internet access which will allow him to be able to better prepare his defence.
With Internet access once again available, the millionaire is still as out there as always. He has obtained the right to visit a recording studio twice a week… so that he can finish the music album that he has been working on.
This album involves the cooperation of numerous international artists. In December 2011, MegaUpload kicked things off by producing the Mega Song and a video for close to 3 million dollars.
Numerous well known American artists like P Diddy, Will.i.am, Alicia Keys, Snoop Dog and Kayne West displayed their support for MegaUpload. This song and video provoked the ire of Universal Music who tried in vain to have it suppressed.
The well-orchestrated viral campaign came crashing down with the closure of MegaUpload by US authorities in January 2012. The revenue generated by the album currently being produced will be used to pay Kim Dotcom’s lawyers, as his personal fortune has been blocked since mid-January. He has nevertheless obtained access to 37 000 Euros per month for his expenses.
