Kim Dotcom gets involved in New Zealand politics and faces off with Prime Minister over Spy-Law.

Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom was for the first time face to face with New Zealand Prime Minister John Key as lawmakers examine a controversial proposal allowing intelligence agencies to spy on local residents. Kim Dotcom was in parliament to argue against the proposal at a select committee hearing chaired by the Prime Minister.

Kim Dotcom was raided by the New Zealand police over a year ago with extreme measures. The US accuse him of massive copyright violations. He has since then launched a new file sharing service. The whole PRISM scandal plays in his hands and apparently he wants to get more involved into New Zealand politics.
