The Bizarre Tale of Kim Dotcom 

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

Kim Dotcom’s life is going to make one hell of a movie some day. The New Zealand Herald has a recounting of the computer entrepreneur/hacker’s recent arrest related to massive copyright infringement, as well as his insanely lavish lifestyle.

For more insanity, Gizmodo has a gallery of many pictures of Dotcom, including several detailing the places where he hammer-timed.

It would seem that like drugs or any other large-scale crime, copyright theft pays, at least for a time. It’s also worth noting that this case seems like a pretty good reason why SOPA/PIPA simply aren’t needed. To wit, law enforcement agencies already have many effective tools to combat online piracy.
