[3news.co.nz] Kim Dotcom’s first TV interview: ‘I’m no piracy king' - Page 6

Compare the types of files that get shared on either website;
YouTube - Videos, which are very easy to check for pirated content.
MegaUpload - ANYTHING, including password protected .rar or sections of .rar parts, with these kind of password protected files MegaUpload cannot simply determine whether the content inside is infringing copyright or not. They would have to crack the rar password then check the files inside, a great deal more difficult than simply checking an unencrypted video.

I completely agree with you that's it is near impossible. However, it's still illegal to host it. If you can't provide the security than essentially you can't have the business.

EDIT: Also I feel bad for those of you who were using the site for its original intended purpose, but due to those taking advantage and Kim's inability to remove the pirated files I don't see how this could have been avoided.

How ignorant can you possible be? If you read the article you will find out that the major media companies all had DIRECT DELETE ACCESS. I mean they didn't even have to go through megaupload, they could delete infringing links their own.

Educate yourself before you post ignorant comments next time.

What part of "DMCA protects sites from infringing content uploaded by users" do you not understand?

EDIT: Seriously people, if you DON'T know what the law is, maybe you shouldn't start stating your OPINION as fact.

That was a good read, I found it quite funny how he kept repeating the phrase "you know" in pretty much every response ..

Everyone talks like he's a criminal. The FBI has alleged. Now they need to prove it.

Anyone against Megaupload here is against freedom on the internet. Megaupload was used for more than just piracy, it had and has full legal backing of the US justice system under the DMCA. If the FBI has no evidence that Kim dotcom willfully engaged in piracy or that it was a Megaupload policy to willfully engage in piracy then the case will be thrown out.

That's the crux of the matter here. They allege that the site's owners ran it as a piracy site. If they fail to prove that Kimble is off the hook and Megaupload, by all rights, should go back online. Why do you think the FBI was so quick to try to delete all the files? Hmm? Because they KNOW they don't have anything solid on Megaupload and just wanted to do irreversible damage.

Aside from the fact that Megaupload did as YouTube did and give unwarranted and unprecedented access to their files to rights holders it seems to me that 5000 links per 24 hours, per content provider, wasn't enough for them.

Megaupload is innocent until proven guilty and you Americans best not forget that important part of the law, so let's stop with the damning remarks.

Also:
Quote:
JC: CNET, in an article that looked pretty well researched to me and well sourced said, and I quote, “among the copyright owners who’ve accused Megaupload of piracy, including software and video game companies none of them presented the FBI with more, quote, significant evidence, end quote, about Megaupload than the MPAA. Did any members of the MPAA come to you and say “we have concerns, Kim, about what’s going on in Megaupload”.

KD: Never. And I gotta tell you this – if you are a company that is hurt so much by what we are doing, billions of dollars of damage, you don’t wait and sit and do nothing. You call your lawyers and you try and sue us and try to stop us from what we are doing.

Yeah, funny that. No cease and desist? No court action? Nothing. One day the FBI turn up and arrest you.

Something about this isn't right and it's not Megaupload, its the US justice dept.
Quote:
KD: Absolutely not. No legal document has ever reached us from any of these studios. The only thing that we get is Takedown Notices and them using the direct delete access on our website. So, isn’t it surprising to you that when I’m the pirate king and I’m causing all this damage that none of them has ever even attempted to sue us, to sue us for damages, you know? If you would run a business that loses billions of dollars because of me, you wouldn’t just sit there and do nothing. I mean, this investigation was ongoing for over two years, you know, the company was live for over seven years, the MPAA has always thrown names at us and called us all kinds of things but they’ve never actually done anything to you know, take us to court and for the very simple reason that there is a law in the US that protects us which is the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that protects online service providers from actions of their users and this is the same law that allowed Google to still exist, that allowed YouTube to still exist. You know that Viacom sued YouTube and YouTube claimed that they were protected by the DMCA and they won. And if you look at the YouTube case files, the emails that were exchanged internally we are a lamb compared to what was going on at YouTube at the time but these guys got away. They won their lawsuit and I’m sitting in jail, my house is being raided, all my assets are frozen without a trial, without a hearing. This is completely insane, is what it is.

I mean, come on? Is anyone against MU actually reading what he says? He makes a strong case.
Quote:
KD: It’s a press release. An indictment of 72 pages which is so maliciously designed to basically to get a judge and a grand jury in the US to agree to these kinds of actions has been unheard of. Look out there at the professional legal opinions of everyone that has seen this. It’s nothing more but a press release filled with things out of context designed to make me look as bad as possible.

and half of OCN has bought it hook, line and sinker. Bad BAD MU.

It is unethical to host a web site that facilitates piracy, and that's why the courts are going to sock it to him.

Even if all he does is "List" links to pirated stuff, he is guilty of knowingly aiding & abed-ding criminals.

If the courts want to put the hammer on you, and they obviously want to destroy him, he is already as good as done....

The bottom line is, this guy is going down, he can say what he wants to, it doesn't matter, he's finished.

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE POSTS IN A THREAD BEFORE YOU START ASSERTING WHAT YOU THINK IS LAW.

Thanks.

The only way he's going to jail is if there is new evidence or through a corrupt and/or extremely flawed legal process.

DMCA -
Quote:
It criminalizes production and dissemination of technology, devices, or services intended to circumvent measures (commonly known as digital rights management or DRM) that control access to copyrighted works. It also criminalizes the act of circumventing an access control, whether or not there is actual infringement of copyright itself. In addition, the DMCA heightens the penalties for copyright infringement on the Internet

IMO Kim is guilty of violating the above. I know what the law is and I believe he broke it. The laws of our nation always allow interpretation. I hate the people who come on saying, "you don't know the law... blah blah blah" while thinking they do.

Again, IMO Kim is guilty and I hope they nail him to set a precedent that this won't be tolerated. Playing the game of, "sure illegal things were going on under my companies name, but I'm hands off and therefore have no responsibility," should not be tolerated.
