    Kim Schmitz (born January 21, 1974), also known as Kimbleand Kim Dotcom,is a German entrepreneur best known as the founder of the Megaupload website and associated sites.

    Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, Schmitz gained notoriety as a computer criminal who was convicted of credit card fraud,hacking,insider trading, and embezzlement.

    NoU. There is nothing wrong with my femaleness, its merely the inherent lack of any fking clue whatsoever in understanding womenz, on any level, on the part of maleness.

    Also - cocks.

    Funny how FBI can shut a website and make arrests swiftly.

    Funny how they are too fucking incompetant to shut down a criminal cult, in spite of overwhelming evidence, witness testimonies, video evidence, deaths, and international and federal crimes being committed routinely.

    FBI can suck my downloads through a sweaty tampon.

    I'm not so sure that the knee jerk reaction against this indictment is warranted. It's no secret that tons of copyrighted material is made available on Megaupload every day. Obviously Megaupload can't be held accountable for every copyrighted item uploaded but they still have a responsibility to take steps to prevent their site being used in such a way. According to the indictment, the US government has compelling evidence that not only were they not taking such steps, but were in fact profiting off of their site being used as a distribution point for copyrighted materials. Now they will have their day and court and the government will have to prove its case. If they were tacitly allowing their site to be used to distribute copyrighted materials (and we already know that they profit from running the site) then they're pretty clearly in violation of the law and should have to answer for that. I can agree with raising awareness of this indictment to make sure there are plenty of eyes watching to ensure a fair trial, but I'm not sure I would automatically assume that Megaupload is in the right here.

    If you can believe "plenty of eyes watching" will ensure a fair trial, my kneejerk reaction would be ROFLMAO.
    And I am not assuming anything.

    As much as I think this is a waste of time and money, I respect there is a due process being applied here, rather than SOPA or PIPA.
  28. xenubarb Member

    Yeah, send a note to a guy who has nothing to do with anything relevant to this issue.

    I admire your optimism in the face of what appears to me to be a bucket of rotted clamshells being waved at government legal eagles.

    I do not share your sense of respect for that long, long overdue process.
  30. 3rdMan Member

    I'm not optimistic. There is still the problem with the courts not understanding how the internet works sufficiently to make an informed judgment.

    Yeah, I'm so sure it will be a fair trial. Nothing to see here.
  33. DeathHamster Member

    You know, I really REALLY doubt that Megaupload was charged with piracy.

    Kimble is even a bigger cunt than smurf's ass dreams to be.

    Yeah I am going to agree with the article. The massive DDoSing isn't going to help the fight against PIPA and SOPA.
