US Suffers Another Blow In Its Case Against Kim Dotcom

Is it OK for me to say that I’m a little glad the US is doing so poorly in its case against Megaupload kingpin Kim Dotcom? I am. I am so glad. I miss Megaupload dearly and I’m truly pleased by this latest news: Judge Winkelmann of the High Court of New Zealand has upheld a ruling that the FBI must disclose all manner of documents detailing their communication with the MPAA and RIAA on behalf of copyright owners.

The judge made his ruling (PDF), noting Dotcom “will be significantly constrained in his or her ability to participate in the hearing, and the requesting state will have a significant advantage in terms of access to information,” reports The Register. Oh, goody. [TheRegister]
