(Wellington, New Zealand) Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, huge at 6' 7" and 300lbs, is in jail in New Zealand awaiting extradition to the U.S. A German national, Dotcom and three accomplices were arrested last Friday after an FBI investigation.

The four face charges of copyright infringement as well as conspiracy to commit copyright infringement, conspiracy to commit money laundering and conspiracy to commit racketeering.

Dotcom (aka Kim Schmitz) allegedly stole hundreds of millions of dollars from copyright holders and collected more than $175 million for himself which he lavished on fast cars, sleek yachts, hot women and wild parties. Dotcom's capture reads like a James Bond movie segment. (More.)
