In a new court filing Megaupload's legal team refutes the U.S. Government's claim that Kim Dotcom and his former colleagues are fugitives. The filing further reveals efforts to uncover the MPAA's involvement in the criminal investigation into Megaupload and Kim Dotcom. kimfugitiveItâ€™s been nearly three years since Megaupload was taken down by the U.S. authorities but itâ€™s still uncertain whether Kim Dotcom and his fellow defendants will be extradited overseas. As thereâ€™s little progress in the criminal case, the U.S. launched a separate civil case asking the court to forfeit the bank accounts, cars and other seized possessions of the Megaupload defendants. The U.S. claims that these assets were obtained through criminal activities. In a recent motion to strike the DoJ added that Kim Dotcom and his fellow defendants have no right to oppose the forfeiture request as they are fugitives. â€œClaimants Bram van der Kolk, Finn Batato, Julius Bencko, Kim Dotcom, Mathias Ortmann, and Sven Echternach, are deliberately avoiding prosecution by declining to enter the United States where the criminal case is pending,â€ U.S. Attorney Dana Boente noted. Yesterday evening Megauploadâ€™s legal team filed a response to the Governmentâ€™s motion, noting that the U.S. heavily distorts the â€œfugitiveâ€ status concept. The lawyers inform the court that Kim Dotcom and his fellow defendants arenâ€™t trying to avoid prosecution. Instead, theyâ€™re remaining in place until the New Zealand court decides over their extradition request. â€œThese Claimants never fled the United States to evade prosecution. To the contrary, they remain precisely where they have long been residing and carrying out the very business enterprise that the Government characterizes as criminalâ€”in New Zealand.â€ â€œNor have these Claimants altered their plans so as to avoid return to the United States. To the contrary, they are simply maintaining the pre-indictment status quo and following the rule of law by invoking their rights under the laws and procedures of their home countries, where they had long-planned to remain.â€ In a declaration to the court Dotcom emphasizes that heâ€™s currently under supervision of the New Zealand court. He never fled from the United States, in fact, he has never been there in his entire life. â€œI have never been a citizen or permanent resident of the United States. I have never visited the United States,â€ Dotcom writes. Megauploadâ€™s lawyers ask the court to deny the U.S. â€œfugitives'â€ claim or keep it pending until thereâ€™s a decision on the motion to dismiss they filed earlier. In this motion they argued that the entire case should be dismissed since the U.S. doesnâ€™t have a statute for criminal secondary copyright infringement. If the court decides to move forward, Megauploadâ€™s legal team want the â€œfugitivesâ€ claim to be converted to a request for summary judgment. This would allow them to conduct discovery and find out what role the MPAA played in the criminal investigation. Shortly before the investigation began the MPAA hired former Assistant Attorney General, Cybele Daley, for lobbying purposes. Daley had a budget of over $1 million a year to lobby attorneys at the Department of Justice, and Megauploadâ€™s lawyers want to find out where the U.S. was overreaching. Itâ€™s now up to the Virginia federal court to decide how to proceed. Needless to say, the outcome will have a major impact on Dotcomâ€™s means to fight back. torrentfreak
A pair of award-winning writers decorated by the Queen have told a House of Commons debate that only education can solve the piracy problem . Assemblies on copyright should take place in every school, one suggested, while the other favors letting kids know that it's only J.K Rowling that gets Hollywood money "for writing a little story about wizards." The idea that the copyright wars can be won through education is nothing new, but itâ€™s a notion thatâ€™s likely to gain more traction in the coming years. Suing the hell out of file-sharers might currently be popular with trolls, but the mainstream entertainment companies are increasingly opting to â€œeducateâ€ consumers via emailed warnings instead. However, getting into the hearts and minds of young people before they become budding adult pirates is also an option, some believe. The likes of the RIAA and MPAA have been dabbling in this area for many years and just last year it was revealed that the group behind the U.S. â€œsix-strikesâ€ program haddeveloped a curriculum targeted at kids from kindergarten through sixth grade. Yesterday ideas along the same lines were put forward by UK authors during a debate in the House of Commons. Bemoaning the state of renumeration for writers and authors in the UK, Joanne Harris MBE, the author of the Oscar-winning movie Chocolat starring Johnny Depp, said that downloading literature from the Internet was not â€œsticking it to the manâ€. If children could understand that not everyone is as lucky or rich as J.K. Rowling, and that â€œrealâ€ people are behind these works, progress might be made, Harris said. â€œAuthors and creators should go into schools. Let children see what an author is like, let them go out into the community and talk to people, let them understand that we have children, we have mortgages; we do not simply get showered with Hollywood money because we happened to write a little story about wizards one day,â€ Harrissaid. Award-winning poet Wendy Cope OBE was in agreement, noting that a general failure to do anything effective against illegal downloading meant that educating children about copyright is the only solution left. â€œThere is a need of education, because so many people are so completely ignorant of the basic fact of copyright. It seems to me it would take five minutes to explain, once a year in assembly, that there is such a thing as the law of copyright,â€ Cope said. â€œAssemblies in every school in the country that such a thing of copyright exists â€“ so these people who tell me I have photocopied your poem and sent it to all my friends know that they are breaking the law.â€ And herein lies a problem. While Cope undoubtedly works very hard to produce her poetry, one might think that the sharing culture facilitated by todayâ€™s social media phenomenon would be a useful ally, not a foe, when it comes to getting her noticed by young people. But Cope was born in the 1940s and clearly still views photocopying (Xeroxing) as something to be concerned about, so thereâ€™s a bit of a disconnect here. Also, when one compares Copeâ€™s views with those of Paulo Coelho, one of the most widely read authors in the world, who loves BitTorrent and people pirating his books, it becomes clear that the failure of an author to gain an audience wonâ€™t be overcome by talking about copyright in a classroom once a year. Finally, Copeâ€™s idea of informing children that illegal downloading is the same as stealing sweets or candy presumes that children can not only tell the difference between a legal and illegal copy of her poems, but also between a purchased Paulo Coehlo book and a â€˜piratedâ€™ one â€“ and all the shades of fair-use gray in between. Whether copyright proponents and anti-piracy outfits will care about those subtle shades once theyâ€™re allowed inside a classroom is another matter entirely â€“ especially if they only get five minutes. http://torrentfreak.com/copyright-education-needed-in-every-school-parliament-hears-140709/
