Jan 21 - Megaupload Founder Discovered in New Zealand Safe Room With Gun
 

 
In a dramatic, digital-age stand-off that played like a scene from a Hollywood thriller, dozens of New Zealand police backed by helicopters swarmed the barricaded mansion of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom to arrest him on Friday for Internet copyright theft.

Police had to cut their way through electronic locks to a safe room, where they discovered Dotcom - also known as Kim Schmitz - with a firearm.


“Despite our staff clearly identifying themselves, Mr Dotcom retreated into the house and activated a number of electronic-locking mechanisms," Detective Inspector Grant Wormald from the Organized and Financial Crime Agency New Zealand told Reuters.

Dotcom, who according to the FBI has made $42 million from pirated materials in 2010 alone, has been charged with operating a criminal enterprise that distributes intellectual property in what U.S. authorities are labeling one of the largest copyright cases in history.

The copyright violations represent $500 million in damages, according to a U.S. Justice Department indictment.

New Zealand police said two firearms and several luxury cars were removed from Dotcom’s mansion.

As for the mansion, it too seems to have been pulled from the movies. Local news footage shows a sprawling, castle-like complex with a sign out front that reads “Dotcom mansion.” Secrecy apparently isn’t a Dotcom family trait.

Authorities also seized firearms and several luxury cars. The cars, which include a Rolls Royce, a pink Cadillac and a Mercedes, were reportedly outfitted with license plates that read “Hacker,” “Mafia,” and “God.”

Dotcom only leased the mansion. He failed a “good character” test for migrants in 2010, preventing him from buying property.

this dude was a piece of crap anyways

Early career

As a teenager, Schmitz earned a reputation in his native Germany for cracking corporate PBX systems in the United States, and tried to parlay it into a career in data security. [8] That effort led to his arrest on charges of using and selling stolen calling card numbers. [9] [10] In 1994, Schmitz founded a computer security company called DataProtect.[11] In 1999, DataProtect and IVM engineering presented the "Megacar", a D2 generation Audi A8 which, among other features, had a Windows NT server, a 17.3" SGI flat panel display and combined 16 GSM modules to provide mobile broadband Internet access.[12]
In 1998, Schmitz was sentenced to a probationary sentence of two years for computer fraud and handling stolen goods.[13] According to a report by News & Record, he had traded stolen calling card numbers he bought from hackers in the United States.[14] He achieved early notoriety by being the subject of an advanced-for-its-time flash animation video called Kimble Special Agent.[15]
Schmitz later sold 80 percent of the shares of DataProtect to "TÜV Rheinland" in 2000, and TÜV Data Protect went bankrupt in 2001.[16][17]
[edit]Insider trading and embezzlement

In 2001, Schmitz purchased $375,000 worth of shares of the nearly bankrupt company LetsBuyIt.com and subsequently announced his intention to invest EUR 50 million in the company.[18] Unknown to others, Schmitz did not have the funds available to invest, although the announcement caused the share value of LetsBuyIt.com to jump by nearly 300%.[19] Schmitz quickly sold the shares and profited $1.5 million as a result.[18]
Schmitz had also arranged and obtained an unsecured loan of EUR 280,000 from Monkey AG, a company for which Schmitz had served as Chairman of the Board. The funds were to be paid to Kimvestor AG. As a result, both Monkey and Kimvestor went bankrupt.[20]
In January 2002, Schmitz was arrested in Bangkok, Thailand, deported to Germany, and sentenced to a probationary sentence of one year and eight months, and a EUR 100,000 fine, the largest insider-trading case in Germany at the time.[21] Schmitz also pleaded guilty to embezzlement in November 2003 and received a two-year probation sentence.[22]

Leave the fu*kin guy alone bro. He just a interent nerd. Who cares man. People are out here k!lling people and were worried abuot some uploader site???? the guy can't control what people do on there. people use uploading sites for big pictures and all kinds of documents and stuff if they don't have a flash drive or something. Just because people used it for downloading does not mean its his fault. there plenty of uploader sites. Why don't they go after all them?? just because megaupload would not expire as fast and u could upload more gigs on it, who cares. give me a break. This is b/s. Guy does not belong in jail. He doesn't even look like he could last a weekend in jail. Bunch of bull sh*t. A lot of artist use megaupload for there downloads on there websites. People been using this sh*t for like 6 years and now they finally do something about it. stupid.
