Megabox[ edit ] Megabox, a new form of media downloading site, was the first of its kind. Kim "Dotcom" described Megabox as "very similar to iTunes" except that it operated in a web browser using HTML5 technology and loaded "much faster than iTunes or anything else out there".
It allowed users to upload content to Megaupload without having to visit the website itself or download the Mega Manager. From onward, users with Hong Kong IP addresses were banned from accessing the site. The reason for the block was never disclosed by Megaupload,  but Hong Kong Customs officials have suggested that the block was an attempt to hinder law enforcement investigation.
One day after the indictment Google and Archive. Online Piracy and Counterfeiting", which said that Megaupload and Megavideo were, along with RapidSharethe top three websites classified as "digital piracy", with more than 21 billion visits per year.
It was also said to contain spyware. Therefore, a single file may contain multiple links to it. This has caused some controversy, since when a DMCA takedown notice is issued only the link that was provided is removed; not necessarily the file itself.
Megaupload said that the video contained no infringing content, commenting: Federal Bureau of Investigation that the four be extradited for racketeering and money laundering. The crown argued against bail on the basis that he was a flight risk with a helicopter on his front lawn, while defence lawyers argued that the helicopter could not fly far enough to reach another country.
They also said that Dotcom denied any criminal wrongdoing. Judge David McNaughton expressed concern at the discovery of two shotguns at Dotcom's mansion during the police raid,  and deferred a decision on whether to grant bail, saying that he needed more time to review the submissions.
Dotcom would flee jurisdiction and the possibility that if he reached Germany he wouldn't be extradited to face the charges". The assets in 63 bank accounts and around thirty other vehicles remained in custody.

On 28 JuneNew Zealand High Court judge Justice Helen Winkelmann ruled that the search warrants used to raid the home of Kim Dotcom were invalid, saying "The warrants did not adequately describe the offences to which they related.
They were general warrants, and as such, are invalid. Key commented "I expect our intelligence agencies to operate always within the law. Their operations depend on public trust. Dotcom's lawyers said they would appeal the decision.
Basis of indictment[ edit ] The indictment   alleged that Megaupload differed from other online file storage businesses. Media reports covering the case highlighted several points from the indictment used to support claims of illegal activity.
The indictment provided instances alleged to show criminal behaviour, as well as indicating design points of Megaupload's operating model as being evidence of criminal intent: Continued storage is dependent upon regular downloads of the file occurring.
Files that are infrequently accessed are rapidly removed in most cases, whereas popular downloaded files are retained. Adverts are primarily viewed when files are downloaded and the business model is therefore not based upon storage but upon maximizing downloads.
It is said[ by whom? Defendants explicitly discussed evasion and infringement issues, including an attempt to copy and upload the entire content of YouTube.
A Los Angeles Times analysis stated that the author was "struck by how far the indictment goes to find something nefarious";  likewise a TechDirt analysis concluded that while the founder of Megaupload had a significant history of "flounting the law", evidence has potentially been taken out of context or misrepresented and could "come back to haunt other online services who are providing perfectly legitimate services".
The legal concerns included: Indictment cites lack of a site search as evidence supporting criminality, but in other copyright cases having a site search has been described as evidence in support of criminality and in Atari v.
RapidShare not having a site search was agreed by the court as evidence of responsible activity given that some infringing content might exist and be searched for if one existed.Managers at SHRD are concerned that the "Single Samsung" spirit, which forms the core of Samsung culture, is being threatened from within.
