Kim Dotcom legal saga: Extradition to US over Megaupload still on cards but he claims court ruling is a 'major victory'

After five months of deliberation, Gilbert found that Dotcom remained eligible for extradition to the US - but not on copyright charges.

He said it was effectively a statement from the court that neither he, his co-accused or Megaupload had broken any New Zealand laws.

"Now they're trying through the back door to say this was a fraud case.
I'm confident going with this judgment to the Court of Appeal.

The ruling today has created an unusual bureaucratic contradiction - the warrant which was served on Dotcom when he was arrested on January 20, 2012, stated he was being charged with "copyright" offences.

Likewise, the charges Dotcom will face in the US are founded in an alleged act of criminal copyright violation.

Dotcom said there were plans to take a separate court action over the arrest warrant, given it showed he had been arrested for a crime which effectively did not exist in New Zealand.

Someone wants to make an example of this guy, without a doubt.
I would bet the interested party is in the US too.

More like someone wants to make an example of the innocent people who lost files to the US government.
