    I don`t think that any reasonable person can consider Megaupload as innovative

    If you expect Obama and the Democrats to side with the people against their Hollywood friends and contributors, you`re going to be sorely disappointed.

    An interesting appeal to steal from the people that create.

    I think what most people fail to realize is that The President can`t snap his fingers and change things. There`s a legislative process for a reason, and pretending that the President is some kind of political wizard is stupid. Focus your attention on Congress, people.

    i totally agree with the message of this song. IF the president doesn`t do something soon, i might have to start paying for my movies and *ghasp* subscribe to a cable tv provider.

    If this is an example of pirates` creative content, I think I`ll be happy to keep paying my way.

    this is about far more than people down loading free music or movies...this is about ACTA and SOPA and every other attempt by the gov to steal the internet and take control of it, to make something that is bigger than them, something that is NOT theirs, under their total control.

    they want to turn anything and everything into a crime and if you do not believe me ask why the US gov adds about 40,000 new laws to the federal registrar per year.

    What the US gov did to Kim Dotcom was completely illegal. He is NOT a US citizen and DID NOT live in the US. Some of his internet traffic went across a US based server that he rented, but that does not mean by any means that he committed any crimes in the US. When the US gov can send agents into another country to arrest a man that has committed no crimes in the US then no one is safe from that form of tyranny.

    and he is right, copyright laws have been turned into weapons of the powerful.

    Funny how you read the comments and come to realize it`s the republicans are the anti-business lock him up douches of the planet. Why not try to understand what`s going on in this world around you before condemning everyone to jail. You don`t want the world you dream of because you are incapable of living up to your own image.

    I agree Jamie, but this is the last person that should be trying to make himself a poster-boy for a real issue.

    Claiming that his arrest was an American overstep of power is overstated. The Kiwi were in on the raid. As were the Canadians, Hong Kong`s Department of Justice (Fraud), The Netherlands (fraud and `enviromental crime`?), and his own home country of Germany (in which he`s been convicted of a handful of fraud and embezzelment crimes already).

    He is a criminal. His claims of being the little guy persecuted by Big Bad America are bullpoo. His claims of having a `hacker past` are Bullpoo, seeing as several countries are actively seeking him for crimes he never answered for which have nothing to do with any mega-sites.

    Find another martyr. This one sucks.

    Really? Explain please how this man has received due process. His assets are frozen. His database is seized. What is your proof that what he did was criminal?

    it`s pretty funny that the result of him being made an example of pretty much only decentralised piracy...rather than several large file hosts, now they use one of the hundreds that sprung up in the void that MU left

    at least MU followed through with DMCA requests and removed rewards per download long before this happened...simply put, his business is gone, legal customers will stay away, so he might aswell jump the shark and aim to make a religion around himself

    Horrible song. This guy and the wikileaks guy are heros of free speach and should not be given to the US. History will see them as martyr if they are given up.

    No I want to see this trial. Mr. Dot Com deserves his day in court. But they need to meet his demands or the constitution means nothing. We seized this guys business and convicted him to a life of starting over from scratch without due process. Anybody who cares about the constitution should demand a trial for KDC. Here`s more on this.
