While being bombarded with several claims in a fairly public battle with the U.S. government over legality issues, the founder of MegaUpload, Kim DotCom, has found himself gaining support from some pretty important people, including Steve Wozniak. According to CNET, Wozniak took time to visit Kim DotCom while on a trip to New Zealand.
The folks over at CNET mentioned the following:
During a trip to New Zealand last month, Wozniak stopped by DotCom’s home outside Auckland and took several photographs with the MegaUpload founder who is also the man accused by the United States of criminal copyright violations, money laundering and wire fraud. The United States is trying to extradite DotCom and a hearing in New Zealand to decide the matter is scheduled for August.
The case seems quite vague and pretty shady to begin with but it isn’t much of a surprise to see DotCom getting a lot of public support. The support even extends to a New Zealand judge who is demanding that the U.S. hand over evidence.
