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.

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

Claiming that his arrest was an American overstep of power is overstated. -------- 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?

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.
