It is not only the gigantic estate among the luscious green hills of New Zealand, but also the luxury yacht, private helicopter and sports car lifestyle that stands as a testimony to the prowess of notorious hacker, businessman and Megaupload-founder Kim Dotcom. But as glittering as this façade may be, the Internet pioneer’s past is not. Initially wanted for credit card fraud in 1994, the allegations against Kim built up as the years went by. They reached their pinnacle in 2012 with a media storm surrounding his latest dispute with the US government. At the same time, he transformed into one of the most important advocates for the liberalisation of the Internet. KIM DOTCOM is the enthralling story of one of the best-loved and most hated figures in the online world.
