Kim Dotcom is in the midst of a big lawsuit, and he's looking for a lot of help.
The MegaUpload founder is looking for anyone who can prove that Hollywood studios worked with the U.S. to takedown MegaUpload. Dotcom claims that Hollywood struck a deal with the U.S. government to give them the votes and influence they needed to get Barack Obama re-elected, as long as the government worked to get MegaUpload offline. If he can't prove his case in New Zealand court (where he's based), he'll then be extradited to the U.S. to face charges of racketeering, money laundering and copyright theft.
My case is unfair: I was declined discovery I didn't get my own data back I need Whistleblowers I am offering USD $5M http://t.co/OhE7k3KlUL— Kim Dotcom (@KimDotcom) June 8, 2014
"We are asking for information that proves unlawful or corrupt conduct by the US government, the New Zealand government, spy agencies, law enforcement and Hollywood," Dotcom said. "It is the opinion of my legal team that disclosure of such information would be lawful. I would also guarantee anywhistleblower coming forward would have the best legal representation at zero cost."
