Kim Dotcom is able to continue enjoying his lifestyle after a New Zealand Court has demanded that the FBI must provide clear evidence of Piracy taking place before he can be extradited to the US to stand trial.
He is on bail, but there are not too many restrictions and he still has access to a lot of his assets.
There are also reports in New Zealand that Kim Dotcom is planning a relaunch of Megaupload aimed at the music industry.
Kim Dotcom was arrested back in January of this year, however due to the size of the case, it has suffered a lot of delays, and a major judge even quit his job over it as the case had become too much of a challenge for him to deal with.
Kim has become a bit of a maverick online and the pirates of the world appear to be adoring him and looking forward to any type of relaunch he has planned.
The Megaupload case is unlikely to be gone into properly until 2013 to allow time for evidence to be collected which can be used against Kim Dotcom if he ever gets to stand trial. That will only happen if he is extradited as the charges have come from the FBI in the US, so he needs to be over there before he will land in a courtroom properly. New Zealand are perhaps not making it as easy for the FBI as they could be.
Mr Dotcom’s Megaupload company is said to have made around $175 million in revenue from Advertising and Memberships on the site.
