Kim Dotcom, the multimillionaire who is awaiting extradition from New Zealand on alleged Internet piracy charges (see Unlikely Folk Hero) has just released his long-awaited new song ‘Mr. President’, directed at United States President Barack Obama. In the song Megaupload’s founder says that Hollywood is taking over politics and that the Government is killing innovation.
Meanwhile RT reports on a music industry organization’s anti-piracy report which has been leaked to the Web. It suggests that charges waged at Megaupload have been exaggerated by its critics – that Megaupload was one of the more law-abiding of the major sites that that allegedly facilitated piracy.
