* Dotcom Warrants Illegal

Personal Stuff/Random News
The warrants used by NZ police in the raid on Kim Dotcom / MegaUpload months ago? They've just been ruled illegal.

This is a big blow to the US's case.

Justice Helen Winkelmann found that the warrants used did not properly describe the offences to which they were related.
Kim Dotcom was arrested in January when the FBI shut down his fire-sharing website aming claims it had cost copyright holders more than $US500 million in lost revenue from pirated films and other content.
The FBI agents had been accused of underhanded behaviour by Dotcom's lawyers in the High Court after they secretly copied data from his computers and took it overseas.
Justice Winkelmann has also ruled it was unlawful for copies of Dotcom's computer data to be taken offshore.
She ordered that no more items taken in the raids could be removed from New Zealand, and instructed the attorney-general to return clones of the hard drives held by New Zealand police.
That's a double blow; illegal to raid, and illegal for the US to take raided material.
