Megaupload Founder Kim Dotcom says that when all of the court room drama is over, his company will win the fight against the U.S. government. Speaking to TorrentFreak over the phone (because he is not allowed to use the Internet), Dotcom said that he was doing fine now that he is out on bail and catching up. Dotcom was released on bail February 22. During the interview he recalled the chaos of January 19 when New Zealand law enforcement invaded his home to arrest him.
"You should have been here, it was amazing, it was like a war zone. Armed police everywhere….two helicopters," Dotcom recalled. “The New Zealand authorities certainly put on a show for the FBI."
While Dotcom is confident that he will win, first he has to fight the U.S. government’s extradition to face a litany of charges related to his file-sharing site in New Zealand's court.
Dotcom also says that this confidence in winning the fight against U.S. charges is shared by his co-defendants – Mathias Ortmann, Bram van der Kolk and Finn Batato.
"We’re going for this and we’re confident we’re going to win," he said. "It [the heavy handedness] went way too far, it was out of all proportion. We feel that the action taken against us was political."
