Internet celebrity, file-sharing mogul, and top-ranked Modern Warfare 3 player Kim Dotcom is back in the news. He and his cofounders were indicted in the US for copyright infringement and racketeering related to the piracy hub Megaupload in early 2012, but managed to fight extradition to the US.

Dotcom says Mega is a legitimate competitor to Dropbox and Google Drive, but critics call it a front for piracy.
