The founder of Megaupload, Kim Dotcom had his entire world come crashing down in late January this year.
Instigated by the FBI, New Zealand police raided his home north of Auckland and took the New Zealand resident / German national into custody on suspicion of all kinds of copyright violation.
Concurrent to that, the FBI took over the Megaupload site, blocking all users from accessing it – even those who had non-infringing content stored there. It seems the fight to recover access to legitimate content is still ongoing.
The very raid itself has been declared illegal and thus most of the outcomes derived from the raid are also regarded as illegal.
New Zealand TV channel 3News has put together a video of the raid upon the house showing the use of at least one helicopter and what could only be described as a complex military-style operation.
The 10-minute video may be viewed here.
