    they should try to resolve the issue at the earliest and should re-assume the program to provide new openings to beginners.

    I read the article about Kim Dotcom carefully.
    I find it very informed.
    Megaupload is one of the world’s most popular file sharing website
    and could not be closed without solid evidence.
    Glad Kim Dotcom won process and making it active.

    Very poorly handled case from the start. Hope it just gets chucked out
    but i cant see the U.S backing down even if they loose or it does get
    chucked out. They will just appeal as many times as possible.

    This is awesome news. Megaupload was one of the best filesharing sites, and I thought he would lose the case for sure! Congrats Mr. Dotcom!

  • Congratulations to Kim Dotcom who have won this case, I hope the future Megaupload file sharing website can be the best, and that certainly makes the data more secure about the privacy of its users.

    I watched with great interest the process, Kim Dotcom was arrested even being innocent, he fought hard, but finally managed to prove his innocence.

    to prove not guilty is the real deal and Kim Dotcom has managed to do it successfully. Well done did manage to get justice finally. Wish good luck in the future
