Faulty MegaUpload Search Warrant

The FBI finally shared important information about the police of New Zealand: it turned out that the former obtained a faulty search warrant. 


A document released by the local courts of justice revealed that MegaUpload hosted copies of Love Birds flicks with Rhys Darby and Temuera Morrison. In addition, the document revealed details about NZ-based users having accounts with the cyberlocker and making money out of Kim Dotcom’s business. After discovering that the search warrant was invalid, the judge decided that this information was of great public interest.

It turned out that the application for the search warrant was filed by detective sergeant Nigel McMorran of the local Organized and Financial Crime Agency. According to the warrant, the Federal Bureau of Investigations offered details of the films hosted on MegaUpload’s servers while also including information about the number of people profiting from the uploading of the content. The FBI named four people, but the Crown managed to keep them anonymous, mentioning only that one of them allegedly made over $5,000 from uploading films within 14 months.

Actually, the indictment stated that MegaUpload’s founder and his fellows encouraged users to upload copyrighted content by offering money. Nevertheless, this reward system was cancelled years before the raid.

The federals claimed that through copyright violation, Kim Dotcom had been able to earn millions of dollars. This illegal money was claimed to be used to fund “the extravagant lifestyle” of Kim Dotcom and his colleagues. Allegedly, this money was spent on “luxury world trips on private yachts and jets, luxury cars and expensive household items and gifts”.

The operation in question lasted for 6 months. Within that time, a federal agent downloaded about $2.500 worth of films, games and TV shows. In addition, the application said that MegaUpload used “high-powered” servers in New Zealand.

The rest of the story remains the same: the North Shore District Court of the country will decide in March 2013 if Kim Dotcom and three of his colleagues will be extradited to the United States or not. The entertainment industry is undoubtedly looking forward to this day.
