News

If you’ve been following the news in the past week, then you’ll well know that the popular file-share website Megaupload has been shut down by the U.S. Government with all its founders and company employees arrested under various pricey and copyright infringement violations.  However, what you may not know is that Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom (real name Kim Schmitz) is also the world’s number #1 FFA Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 player: “MEGARACER”.

Police arrested the 39-year-old in his New Zealand mansion on Friday. They found Schmitz locked in a safe room where police had to neutralise its locks and to cut their way into. Police also carried out 10 search warrants as part of the raid. As much as $NZ11 million in various accounts were frozen by police. 18 luxury vehicles valued at $NZ6 million were also seized by police, including a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe and a 1959 pink Cadillac.

Schmitz is accused by the FBI of various charges, including engaged in racketeering, copyright infringement and money laundering. While his site Megaupload is accused of costing copyright holders more than $US500 million in lost revenue from pirated films, music and other content. This isn’t the first time Schmitz has run into the law, he has a long list of convictions including insider trading, credit-card fraud, hacking and embezzlement.

    While I hate than MegaUpload is gone, it seems like he’s getting what he deserved from the list of other charges.

    No more MW3 for you!!!

    So a 39-yo can be #1 and beat youngsters ? I thought the brain was declining with age and not fast enough to beat teenagers. I’m glad to see that’s not true ! I’ve always been among the best Halo players and very good at MW3 to (but this game is a noob game) but never was able to be number one.
    My brother used a lot MU to DL manga animes but I must say there’s no loss of profit at all, when you have 400 euros a month to live you wouldn’t use your money to buy manga animes (moreover they’re not even legally available in France and only fansubing via MU and others have them in French or English). I think the only good solution is to remove stuff that are already legally available but… when you haven’t money and you’re having a good time enjoying something you DLed, what’s bad ?

      I honestly think that sites like this HELP sales. I will watch a new series and if I like it I will purchase it if it’s available. I’ll download a CD and once again, if I like it, I’ll buy it.
      It’s really only harmful to corporations that put out poor quality movies/music/shows. It actually helps sales of lesser known bands and indie companies.
      It just all comes down to the big corporations have lots of money to give to politicians to get them to do what they want. Politics is all about money. Whoever has the money makes the rules.

        Exactly, that does help them make money but it’s illegal to do that and they have to ask permission to the maker of the game. That is pretty easy to know, it’s even illegal to download games, movies, and music from you’r computer. If you get caught you will get arrested.
