New Zealand intelligence agency illegally spied on Megaupload | TechCentral.ie: "US Department of Justice alleges Megaupload collected US$175 million (€135 million) in criminal proceeds, rewarding users for uploading and sharing content without the permission of copyright holders.
One of Dotcom's attorneys, William Akel said Monday he had just been informed of the Crown Law Office's memorandum to the High Court and could not comment. On Twitter, Dotcom wrote: "Copyright is now officially a matter of national security in New Zealand."
Key's announcement marked another unexpected twist in Megaupload's legal battle. In June, New Zealand's High Court found the raid conducted against Dotcom's mansion was illegal since it used invalid warrants that were overly broad." 'via Blog this'
