Megaupload just like Dropbox and YouTube, Kim Dotcom's lawyer tells Supreme Court

Kim Dotcom's lawyer aligned Megaupload with online services such as Dropbox and YouTube, telling the Supreme Court there was little difference in how they worked.

Ron Mansfield said those businesses all offered a service on the internet which was given specific protection when the New Zealand law of copyright was rewritten to account for the online age.

The argument goes to the heart of the appeal by Kim Dotcom, Mathias Ortmann, Bram van der Kolk and Finn Batato.

The Court of Appeal upheld their extradition to the United States partly on the basis of ruling they were criminally liable under the Copyright Act for movies and music identified on the Megaupload website.
