• I will never get tired of posting this photo of Kim Dotcom

Things are looking up a little for flamboyant Internet entrepreneur, accused uberpirate, and recording artist Kim Dotcom, who in January had his rented New Zealand mansion raided by New Zealand police at the behest of the U.S. Justice Department, which was acting at the behest of major media companies who felt that illegal file trading via Dotcom’s massively popular Megaupload file-locker service was costing them money. According to Ars Technica, a New Zealand judge has ruled that the search was illegal. The problem is that the New Zealand police didn’t know specifically what they were looking for, only that it was linked to copyright infringement, resulting in a warrant so broad in what it allowed the cops to collect—for example “all digital devices, including electronic devices capable of storing and/or processing data in digital form,” which added up to a whopping 150 TB of data—that it fails to meet New Zealand’s legal standards.
