decaf is not an option

I really like Kim Dotcom, don't get me wrong, but he might be a bit naive who built the Internet in the first place. What did he expect to happen?

Because while we've probably all shared a song or minor video, KDC allowed other people's work and just blasted it out to everyone. Tit for tat, I won't feel bad if they take Kim's house and toys and money and stuff and share that for free too.

That's because all the stuff he allowed to be spread around were someone else's house, toys and stuff. Thief.

He offered the same service currently being offered by Amazon, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Dropbox etc. Shall I hold my breath until the CEOs of all of those countries face the same charges?

The companies you mention sell legitimate product, so you'd be hard-pressed to compare.

Now the various spy agencies can review all of your data when stored with Kim.

when stored anywhere.....

check the patriot act

Spying is as American as apple pie... since it's founding spying is part of the American government. Remember that knowledge is power according to people. How you use it is the ethical question.

Um... he isn't an American citizen. He's German. There is nothing illegal about the NSA spying on him so save the crazy for someplace else.

Well this is a good use of resources. I'm sure this was the intended purpose of the NSA since day 1.

In the 1980s all the English speaking countries shifted away from an active agent spy network to a more passive satellite, and telecommunications monitoring to gather intelligence. This is an agreement between the United States and the UK and its Commonwealth Nations.

This whole automated intelligence architecture is as old as the Cold War and literally grew hand in hand with the digital age. The Internet was originally a United States Defense Intelligence Network. Online chatting was invented with the ability to monitor it same with monitoring FTP or File Transfer Protocols prior to the World Wide Web and those web pages we love so much.

You mean the Evil Empire. By the way, there are ways to counter those things. 1) don't use the major search engines to scour for info; use Duck Duck Go and IxQuick. 2) use Tor for browsing. Duck Duck Go even has an alternate web address exclusively accessible via Tor. 3) use a VPN, even if it's a freebie one like Hamachi. 4) if you want to blog or have a website, use WordPress.com through secure tunnels like the above and/or buy web hosting and domains from security-friendly countries outside the U.S. ICANN has a list of approved registrars/hosters; look for some in the E.U. or various island nations. For your best bet, opt for something that known free-speech advocates use/recommend (Dramatica recommends Serious VPS in Prague). 5) don't use Facebook or Twitter. Send to Tumbler via encrypted email like Tormail or your own hosted email via hosting in #4. 6) pay for things with Bitcoins, cash, money order/Western Union, or Visa/AMEX/MC gift cards bought with cash. 7) don't use contract cell phones; go with pay-as-you-go throwaway ones (and especially not smartphones). There are plenty more hints for how to hide from security orgs; nothing is perfect of course, but the more confusion you can throw, the better.

Does anyone believe it makes one bit of difference who is in office when it
comes to any branch of the government spying and recording everything , everyone does
today.
Everything you see , touch or read has a bug or recording device in it today.
Welcome to the new America.

Why bother? Most people these days blast all their personal info online anyway. It's not like anyone has to try real hard to spy.

True... and that proves there are is a far more sinister entity controlling our system and us.

C'mon Dotcom, bring down the Patriot Act and US electronic spying, especially that which is being done at the behest of Corporate America.

New Zealand is an odd country.

They bow to the US, then cower in the corner when they get called out for their illegal and immoral activities.

1) The U.S. is not responsible for information given it in the course of an unrelated investigation. 2) I hope he doesn't have a "heart-attack" like Breitbart.
